Contact lenses offer children clear, natural vision allowing them to take part in all the fun activities that every child should enjoy while growing up. Now, there's a contact lens that can significantly slow-down the progression of myopia so as well as providing freedom from glasses, these contact lenses also reduce the rate of myopia development. Conventional contact lenses and spectacles correct myopia by focussing light on the central retina. However, this introduces peripheral hyperopia which leads to further eye growth until early adulthood. Myopia can be slowed-down using MiSight 1-day contact lenses. These lenses correct myopia but also have specialized peripheral treatment zones that focus peripheral light in front of the retina, rather than behind the retina. Research shows that children between 8 and 12 years of age with the MiSight lens, had 52% less eye growth compared to children wearing conventional lenses. In addition, children using the MiSight lens also had 59% less increase in myopia. As with other myopia management options, MiSight lenses should be worn until the age of 21 or as recommended by your eye-care practitioner. Continuing treatment until this age is recommended because 90% of children stabilize by this time. MiSight contact lenses are ideal for all children - especially those with active lifestyles. Your eye-care professional may even recommend occasional wear as an alternative to myopia management spectacles lenses.
