At Lakeville Family Eye Care, we're dedicated to staying at the forefront of innovative solutions for your eye health — including addressing the growing concern of myopia, especially in children. Let us introduce you to a game-changer: CooperVision's MiSight contact lenses.
Different Options for Myopia Management
While various methods exist to manage myopia, including specialized eyeglasses and different types of contact lenses, MiSight lenses stand out due to their unique technology specifically for myopia control.
Traditional eyeglasses and contact lenses correct vision but do not actively manage myopia progression.
Orthokeratology (ortho-k) involves wearing specialized lenses at night to reshape the cornea temporarily.
Atropine eye drops, while effective, may have side effects and require ongoing monitoring.
MiSight lenses, with their ActivControl® Technology, actively address the underlying cause of myopia progression — the elongation of the eye.
Everything You Need to Know About CooperVision MiSight Contact Lenses
How Do MiSight Contact Lenses Work?
MiSight contact lenses utilize ActivControl® Technology to tackle the root cause of myopia progression. Through a dual-focus design, they redirect light to reduce the elongation of the eye, effectively slowing down the progression of myopia.
The unique dual-focus design alternates between distance correction and treatment zones.
This influences peripheral optics and modifies how light focuses on the peripheral retina.
What Are The Benefits of MiSight Contact Lenses?
One of the primary advantages of MiSight lenses is their effectiveness in managing myopia progression.
These lenses are FDA-approved for children between 8-12 years, ensuring their safety and efficacy in this age group.
They are comfortable, easy to wear, and, as daily disposables, offer a hassle-free experience.
Who is a Good Candidate for MiSight Contact Lenses?
Children between the ages of 8-12 with myopia are ideal candidates for MiSight lenses.
Parents seeking a proactive approach to managing their child's myopia can consider MiSight lenses an effective solution.
