Fatima's Story

Nothing’s Stopping Fatima with MiSight® 1 day

Fatima’s journey with glasses started when she was nine. She thought it would be cool to wear glasses like her older sister. But when she tried on her sister’s glasses for fun one day, she didn’t just like the way she looked in them; she also noticed that she could see more clearly with them on. “That told me I might need eyeglasses like my sister. For actual seeing, not just for looking good,” she says.
Her parents took her in for an eye exam, and they found she had developed myopia and would need eyeglasses. The diagnosis hit them as a surprise. The parents began to worry when six months after Fatima’s initial eye exam, they found out that her prescription had changed, indicating rapid myopia progression. Fatima’s mother, Dhuha, says,

“I was so worried that her eyes were getting worse, so fast, in six months.”

Facing the prospect of their daughter’s vision getting worse, both parents were highly motivated to find something that could control her progressive myopia. “Myopia progression is irreversible, and as a parent, I don’t want to wait for it to be too late for me to act,” explained Samir. After some discussion, their Eye Care Professional recommended that Fatima try MiSight® 1 day soft contact lenses.
Along with making her blurry vision immediately clear again,1 MiSight® 1 day contact lenses are FDA-approved* to slow the progression of myopia in children aged 8 to 12 at initiation of treatment,†2 and this strongly appealed to Fatima’s parents. Specially designed for young users, the lenses are comfortable3 and an easy fit for children.4 Before MiSight® 1 day, Fatima worried about her eyeglasses falling off while she was running, or skateboarding, or accidentally bumping into a classmate. Now, she can leave those worries behind.5
Dhuha and Samir are also leaving their concerns behind. As parents, they were happy they could find a solution for their child. Samir says, “It’s giving my child a chance for a better future and an opportunity for success.” Dhuha adds, “Nothing is going to prevent her from doing something she likes.”

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.
