Adam's Story

Adam’s Vision for the Future Is Bright

Eleven-year-old Adam’s eyesight problems plagued him in all areas of his life, but none were more frustrating than on the ice while he played hockey. His glasses didn’t fit under his helmet and seeing the puck clearly while skating at quick speeds was a challenge. After a tryout where he didn’t make the team, his mother, Selma, knew they needed to take Adam to get his vision checked. A doctor’s visit confirmed his prescription went from -0.75 to -1.75, and that is when his parents grew increasingly concerned about the progression of his myopia.

“We wanted something that would accommodate his active lifestyle. But most importantly, I wanted something that would help slow down the progression of his myopia.”

- Adam's parents


Myopia occurs when the eyeball grows longer than it should, or the cornea is curved too steeply. Instead of being focused precisely on your retina, light is focused in front of your retina, resulting in a blurry distance vision.1 As was Adam’s case, symptoms of myopia can include squinting constantly and headaches. If left untreated, severe myopia can lead to other complications later in life like glaucoma, cataracts, retinal detachment, and macular degeneration.2
With Adam’s rapid myopia progression, these eye health outcomes were of highest concern for Selma. So, when MiSight® 1 day contact lenses offered a way to help reduce the risk of long-term impact of the condition, Adam and his parents were excited to give them a try. As Selma says, “Once I learned more and more about MiSight® 1 day contact lenses, I knew it was the right fit.”
MiSight® 1 day contact lenses are FDA approved* to slow the progression of myopia in children aged 8 to 12 at the initiation of treatment.†3 Specially crafted for children, these daily disposable soft contact lenses are designed to correct distance vision immediately4 while controlling myopia in age-appropriate children.5
After trying MiSight® 1 day, Adam found himself being able to do things his myopia had made hard, even making the travel hockey team for the first time. Thanks to MiSight® 1 day contact lenses, he says, “Everything was so much easier. I could play hockey, play baseball, bike around with my friends, and play video games so much better.”
But the real highlight during his time wearing MiSight® 1 day has been his consistent vision. After a year of wearing MiSight® 1 day contact lenses, Adam’s myopia hadn’t progressed at all. And that means that he and his parents can rest easy knowing that they have his myopia under control.

Indications and Important Safety Information 

Rx only. Results may vary.
ATTENTION: USA Indications: MiSight® 1 Day (omafilcon A) Soft (Hydrophilic) Contact Lenses for daily wear are indicated for the correction of myopic ametropia and for slowing the progression of myopia in children with non-diseased eyes, who at the initiation of treatment are 8-12 years of age and have a refraction of -0.75  to -4.00 diopters (spherical equivalent) with ≤ 0.75 diopters of astigmatism. The lens is to be discarded after each removal. Canadian Indication: MiSight (omafilcon A) Soft Contact Lenses for Myopia Control are indicated for the correction of ametropia (myopia and hyperopia) in aphakic and non-aphakic persons with non-diseased eyes in powers from -20.00D to +2.00 diopters. The lenses may be worn by persons who exhibit astigmatism of -2.00 diopters or less that does not interfere with visual acuity. MiSight (omafilcon A) Soft Contact Lenses for Myopia Control may reduce the rate of myopia progression in children (6-18) and correct ametropia.  Reduction of myopia progression was observed in children with wearing time of 12 hours (8-16 hours) per day, 6.4 days (5-7) per week in a clinical study. Permanent myopia control after lens treatment is discontinued is not supported by clinical studies. MiSight (omafilcon A) Soft Contact Lenses for Myopia Control are indicated for single use daily disposable wear.  When prescribed for daily disposable wear, the lens is to be discarded after each removal. Warnings: Problems with contact lenses could result in serious injury to the eye.  Do not expose contact lenses to water while wearing them. No overnight wear. Patients should exercise extra care if performing potentially hazardous activities. Adverse events:  Including but not limited to infection/inflammation/ulceration/abrasion of the cornea, other parts of the eye or eyelids.  Some of these adverse reactions can cause permanent or temporary loss of vision.  If you notice any of the stated adverse reactions in your child, immediately have your child remove the lenses and contact your eye care professional.
