Did you know myopia or nearsightedness is the leading cause of visual impairment in children worldwide? In the United States alone, close to 14 million children are nearsighted. And with more time spent indoors and on digital devices, those numbers will continue to rise.
Although conventional eyeglasses or contact lenses provide excellent correction for refractive errors, myopia progression and its consequences remain essential considerations. Progressive myopia can increase a child’s long-term risk for retinal issues, glaucoma, cataracts, and associated vision impairments.
For this reason, our office emphasizes the value of myopia management. Beyond offering corrective lenses to give children better vision now, our professional team provides myopia control treatments and strategies to support ongoing eye health.
MiSight® 1 day contact lenses represent the latest innovation in care proven to slow myopia progression in children aged 8-12 years at the initiation of treatment.
As the first and only soft contact lenses approved by the FDA for this purpose, they can help slow the progression of myopia while offering children the daily benefits of clear, crisp vision without eyeglasses.
MiSight 1 day contact lenses are easy to place, comfortable, and designed for one-day use. As with every vision care service, our eye doctor will go over detailed wear and care instructions with you and your child to reinforce proper and healthy contact lens use.
Remember, when it comes to your family’s vision, you can look to our office for the right guidance and care. Our professional team carefully assesses every child to determine the best approach to protect their eye health and support the quality of their vision.
