Myopia management today could mean less worry tomorrow
If you’ve happily worn glasses or contacts all your life, it might seem excessive to start managing myopia in children as young as eight years of age. However, worsening myopia may contribute to more severe eye health complications and sight-threatening conditions later in life, including:2-5
Retinal detachment
A condition that occurs when the retina, a thin layer of tissue that surrounds the inside of the eye, pulls away from supportive layers of blood vessels that provide its necessary oxygen and nourishment.2
Myopic maculopathy
A condition caused by the deterioration of the central portion of the retina, and is a leading cause of severe, irreversible vision loss.3
A condition, usually linked to pressure inside the eye, that causes damage to the eye’s optic nerve, potentially causing irreversible vision loss and blindness. Studies show people with myopia have a 2-3x greater risk of developing glaucoma.4
A clouding of the lens of the eye that can cause changes in vision. Though cataracts can affect everyone as they age, they often develop sooner in patients with myopia.5
What causes myopia?
Myopia is on the rise - in its frequency and severity.6 The reason for its escalation has been linked to two factors.
Family history plays a role in your child’s risk of myopia. The likelihood of children developing increases if their parents are myopic.7 The odds of a child becoming myopic are approximately:7

1 in 2 when both parents are myopic

1 in 3 when one parent is myopic

1 in 4 when neither parent is myopic
Research shows that modern lifestyles may influence the development of myopia.7,9

Insufficient time spent outdoors7,9

Prolonged time spent reading, playing, or working with digital devices, like smartphones or tablets7,9

Poor lighting levels7,9

MiSight® 1 day as part of a Myopia Management Program

Comprehensive support



Managing your child’s myopia—both today and in the future—requires more than just vision correction.

That’s why we’re taking steps to establish a new standard of care for treating myopia in children, including the use of MiSight® 1 day contact lenses.

Helping your child manage their nearsightedness starts with a comprehensive eye exam. Your Eye Care Professional will be able to determine the amount of vision correction your child needs now, and tell you if they’re a good candidate for wearing MiSight® 1 day contact lenses to help slow future myopia progression. They’ll also factor in lifestyle considerations as part of your child’s myopia management plan. For many nearsighted kids, limiting the daily amount of near work and increasing their time spent outdoors can help slow their rate of progression.

The journey toward a brighter future starts today.

  1. The First and Only. MiSight® 1 day is the first and only FDA-approved* soft contact lens to slow the progression of myopia in children aged 8 -12 at the initiation of treatment.2†
  2. Clinically Proven and Safe. Over a 3-year period, slowed myopia progression 59% on average, reduced eye lengthening by 52% on average,2†§ and 41% of eyes had no progression.2†¶ Over a 6-year period, children wearing MiSight 1 day progressed less than 1.00D on average.11§
  3. Parent-Approved. 90% of parents whose children wore MiSight® 1 day contact lenses reported that their children were happy wearing MiSight® 1 day lenses.12|
  4. Child Friendly. After using MiSight® 1 day contact lenses for three years, 90% of children still strongly preferred them over their glasses.13


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.2†. That means that they’ve been comprehensively tested over an extended period and have met all of the safety criteria required by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Clinical Data
The testing of MiSight® 1 day lenses consisted of a three-year clinical study in children 8-12 years old at the time they began treatment for myopia. Half of these children wore MiSight® 1 day contact lenses and the other half wore traditional 1 day soft contact lenses. This way, we could see if MiSight® 1 day really made a difference. And they did. The progression of myopia slowed in 41% of children who wore MiSight® 1 day contact lenses as compared to those who didn’t.

*USA Indications for use: 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 Indications for use: 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.
