Vera's Story

Living Her Best Life with MiSight® 1 day

Vera’s mother has struggled with high myopia. With MiSight® 1 day, Vera may never need to share that experience.
With the guidance of Dr. Jonathan Andrews, Dr. Katie Andrews, and the team at Optometric Associates, 11-year-old Vera has slowed the progression of her myopia with MiSight® 1 day for myopia control.1† Wearing the contact lenses daily for the past two and a half years, she has enjoyed good vision1-3 and has been living an active lifestyle without setbacks. Prior to MiSight® 1 day, Vera’s prescription was getting worse every six months. 

“I’m just a big believer that if we can correct something with science, then let’s do it. Let’s make her life better.”

- Vera's mother, Stella


Vera’s mother, Stella, describes the contact lens experience as seamless. “It was very easy. I thought that it was going to be hard for her to learn how to use the contacts, but she did a great job, and she loves them.” Vera shares how easy they are to put in and take out.2,4‡ Additionally, she finds them to be very comfortable2 and unnoticeable.5
Growing up, Stella suffered from severe myopia that carried through her adult life and led to cataract surgery at the age of 40 – decades earlier than expected. Seeing Vera’s vision declining, she worried that without a course of intervention, her daughter could face the same challenges down the road. It didn’t take long before Stella learned about MiSight® 1 day and was convinced that they should try it. “I was certainly someone who was convinced very early on that this was something that I wanted to do.”
Stella shares that although MiSight® 1 day is an expense, it was an easy choice as a long-term investment in her daughter’s health. Not only will Vera’s quality of life improve,6 but she may likely be mitigating expensive future eye care costs and surgeries.7 Preventing one diopter of myopia may lower the risk of myopic maculopathy by 40%, the risk of open-angle glaucoma by 20%, the risk of visual impairment by 20%, and save between 0.5 and 0.9 years of visual impairment.8
“I’m just a big believer that if we can correct something with science, then let’s do it. Let’s make her life better.”
“She’s able to be so much more active and so much more independent…  She doesn’t even think about them. She goes about her day and she’s just happy,” adds Stella. Vera and Stella’s outstanding experience with MiSight® 1 day points to the importance of educating parents and children about myopia management.

Indications and Important Safety Information 

Rx only. Results may vary. 

ATTENTION: 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.
