Understanding Myopia: A Growing Concern Among Children

Myopia (nearsightedness) is increasingly becoming a concern, especially among children. This condition, which often develops in school-age years and typically progresses until about age 20, is marked by difficulty seeing distant objects clearly.

The modern lifestyle, which includes prolonged use of digital screens and limited outdoor activities, contributes to its rise. The American Optometric Association (AOA) notes that 34% of children aged 12-17 are myopic, a trend that reflects changes in how young people spend their time.

To address this growing issue, MiSight 1 Day lenses have been introduced as an innovative solution designed to help manage myopia progression in young wearers.

The Role of Family History in Childhood Myopia

Myopia often has a genetic component, making children with parents who are myopic more likely to develop the condition themselves. This hereditary risk, combined with environmental factors, heightens the likelihood of myopia onset in children. Parents need to be aware of these risks and be proactive in managing them.

What are MiSight 1 Day Contact Lenses?

MiSight 1 Day contact lenses aim to help control myopia progression in children. These innovative lenses are the first FDA-approved soft contact lenses proven to slow the progression of myopia when initially prescribed for children aged 8-12.

The lenses work on the principle of "myopia control" by using a dual-focus design. This design has two distinct optical zones: one corrects the refractive error to improve distance vision, and the other is structured to reduce the stimulus for further myopia progression.

MiSight 1 Day lenses are disposable lenses worn once and discarded daily. This promotes high hygiene and convenience, ideal for children's lifestyles and activities. This ensures ease of use and minimizes the risk of infections associated with lens care routines and long-term wear of contact lenses.
