MiSight Contact Lenses for Myopia Control

Overview

Myopia – short sight – occurs when the eye is longer than the focusing power of its lens, so distance objects appear blurred. Children’s eyes are still developing as they grow and their sight will change regularly during formative years and into young adulthood. Children with short sight can suffer from progressive myopia whereby the eye becomes gradually longer and their short sight progressively worsens over time.

Worsening short sight means that a child will have to wear stronger glasses, they will have worse vision when they remove their glasses and it can also lead to long term health issues – glaucoma, cataracts and retinal detachments are more common in people with short sight.

Myopia Control with MiSight Lenses

MiSight Contact Lenses are a pioneering new technology they contain specially formulated rings of power that the wearer does not notice, but that change the way light falls onto the retina and slows the worsening of the short sight. In a 3 year study, patients wearing the lenses had 59% less worsening in their short sight than a control group.
