How MiSight® 1 day contact lenses work

The ActivControlTM Technology in MiSight® 1 day uses vision correction zones and treatment zones within the lenses to slow the axial elongation of the eyeball

By including both types of zones in the lens, it simultaneously corrects the child’s vision, while creating myopic defocus in all gazes. MiSight® 1 day contact lenses have been shown in a multi-year clinical trial to reduce the average rate of progression of myopia by 59%, which means that the relative risk of a myopia-associated pathology can be significantly reduced. This convenient, daily disposable contact lens is well-accepted by children and does not affect their daily activities. It is designed to be worn for ten or more hours per day, six or more days per week to get the maximum treatment effect.


MiSight

What's causing the rising prevalence of myopia?

The upward incidence of myopia in today’s children can be attributed to different factors, and is occasionally the result of a combination of these factors:






Genetics


Family eyesight history plays a role in a child’s risk of myopia. The likelihood of children developing myopia is:
