MiSight lenses are an innovative new vision-correcting solution for children, which similarly serve to slow the onset of myopia as their eyes develop. Launched in March 2017, these daily disposable contact lenses have been shown to reduce myopic development in children by up to 59%.
Rather than reshaping the cornea, MiSight lenses work by creating a circle of increased power surrounding the central vision. This triggers your eyes to stop growing longer, thereby halting the onset of myopia in its tracks. To be effective these revolutionary lenses must be worn for at least ten hours for six days a week.
As children grow, their eyesight is particularly susceptible to developing common eye conditions such as lazy eye, squints, astigmatism and myopia. Although easily corrected with eyewear, myopia can have detrimental effects later in life, making the onset of glaucoma, retinal detachment and macular degeneration statistically more likely in the future. This is why we’re proud to be one of the first opticians in the country to offer MiSight technology to our young patients.
