Sofia’s Story

Sofia Is Paving The Way For Success with MiSight® 1 day

Sofia is a bright 8-year-old with a promising future and her parents are determined to support her vision journey every step of the way. Sofia's mom understood the impact of vision problems firsthand.

“We have quite a family history of severe myopia. Myself, I have myopia.”

- Sofia’s Mother


Sofia was diagnosed with myopia, also known as nearsightedness, at a 6-years-old, and her myopia progressed rapidly, causing concern and prompting questions.
With her grandmother's severe myopia as a reference point, Sofia's parents were worried that her condition would continue to worsen. They understood the potential implications for her future, as uncontrolled myopia could create employment barriers later in life.
In addition to her mother and grandmother, Sofia's dad had his own experience with myopia, which affected his career aspirations in the RCMP.* His myopia had reached -4.75 and was required to undergo an operation before proceeding with the interview process.
Given her family's experiences, Sofia's parents were determined to find the best treatment solution to control her myopia progression. Working in an optometry clinic for over two decades, Sofia's mom was well-equipped to explore the available options for her daughter.
After monitoring Sofia's vision closely, they noticed that her myopia kept progressing. Concerned about the impact on her daily life and activities, they decided to explore contact lenses as a solution, specifically MiSight® 1 day.
Since wearing MiSight® 1 day lenses, Sofia's life has transformed. With these contact lenses, she enjoys newfound freedom in her routines, at school, during games, cycling, and even jumping on a trampoline. Sofia no longer needs to worry about wearing glasses, and her daily routine includes a quick and effortless process of putting in the contact lenses.≠±1
Since Sofia started wearing MiSight® 1 day lenses, her myopia stabilized,†2 and they couldn't be happier. Although they understand that myopia cannot be cured, they are grateful that they can help slow its progression, allowing Sofia to pursue her activities without the burden of glasses, offering her more than they had in their own youth.
Sofia's future looks bright, thanks to the loving support and proactive approach of her dedicated parents. With MiSight® 1 day lenses, they are confident that she can navigate life with greater clarity and confidence, paving the way for a promising and fulfilling journey ahead.

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.
