ActivControl® Technology for slowing myopia progression in age appropriate children.
Special contact lens technology for children that corrects their vision while slowing myopia progression in children (aged 8-12 at the initiation of treatment) by 59%, on average.*1
Is your child struggling to see the board at school or the television at home? Are objects in the distance blurry? If so, one potential cause is nearsightedness—or what eye care professionals call myopia. When your child has myopia, their eyes are growing too long, and light focuses in front of the retina. This blurs their vision, so they need spectacles or contact lenses to see clearly.
Did you know? 8 in 10 eye care professionals agree that they worry about their pediatric patients having significant eye health issues, such as retinal detachment or glaucoma, later in their lives due to the progression of their myopia.2 And that risk multiplies as a child’s prescriptions get stronger.3
Thanks to ActivControl® Technology, nearsighted children (aged 8-12 at the initiation of treatment) can now enjoy freedom from glasses when wearing their contact lenses while potentially slowing down the progression of their myopia at the same time.1
Specifically designed to reduce the progression of myopia (nearsightedness) 1; helping to control the axial length and refractive error increases of the eye in age appropriate children which can help to reduce the risk of myopia-related vision complications later in life4
Gives age-appropriate children freedom from glasses when wearing their contact lenses1
