CooperVision MiSight

MiSight lenses not only correct the refractive defect of myopia, but also decrease eye elongation and myopia progression. Taking care of axial elongation lowers the likelihood of myopia-related vision issues, such as irreversible vision loss later in life. Myopia management is the primary focus of MiSight contact lenses, which have received FDA approval to halt myopia progression in children aged 8 to 12 years old when treatment is first initiated. These lenses were developed exclusively for myopia control.

Work of MiSight Contact lenses

MiSight contact lenses are designed to correct refractive errors and slow eye elongation. The lens’s peripheral rings aid in focusing light in front of the retina, and the lens has two myopic control zones and two corrective zones. The lens center concentrates on vision correction, while alternate rings around the center control myopia and provide vision correction.

How does this work? The visual correction zones correct myopia in all optical directions, while the control rings produce myopic defocus to slow eye elongation. MiSight contact lenses are used to reduce the progression of Myopia in both children and adults. Myopia, or nearsightedness, is growing more widespread, and frequently manifests during childhood and adolescence.

No need to fear, though! Many treatment options are available, and the issue can be readily addressed using Misight contact lenses. At Lumos Vision Care, we offer myopia control for children, teens and adults.

How does MiSight treat myopia?

MiSight contact lenses are prescription lenses put on the eye to correct out-of-focus images by shifting the eye’s focus. MiSight Contact Lenses are single-use lenses with two primary components:

Correcting the refractive defect that causes nearsightedness. Like a regular corrective lens, this component improves distance vision in those with Myopia.

Concentric peripheral rings to assist focusing light in front of the retina. Light focused in front of the retina is thought to lower the signals delivered to the eyes to compensate for the lack of focus, therefore reducing the progression of Myopia.

MiSight lenses have proven to be particularly effective in preventing Myopia in kids, with tests demonstrating that these lenses delayed myopia growth by 59% compared to regular soft lenses. Furthermore, those who used Misight experienced less change in prescription and axial length of the eyeball during annual eye exams than those who did not use MiSight.

Why did you choose MiSight?

Although Myopia treatment alternatives are available, there are various reasons why the Misight contact lenses may be the best solution for you or your child.

Because MiSight contact lenses are disposable and replaced every day, there is no need for cleaning or disinfection. This makes it simple, especially for children, to maintain proper hygiene and guarantee the eye’s long-term health. Contact lenses must be fitted to the eye; book a contact lens fitting with us here.

MiSight contact lenses are soft lenses that are more comfortable to wear than hard lenses, so they are an excellent option for people who have sensitive eyes or find wearing glasses annoying. It is important to have a contact lens fitting to ensure the safety and comfort of the lens. Book a contact lens fitting with us here.

MiSight lenses get to work right away, unlike conventional contact lenses which require progressive eye adjustment. Since disposable lenses require a fresh set daily, lost lenses are easily replaced.
