miSight Myopia Control

At eyelines we have been using overnight Ortho-K contact lenses for myopia control for a number of years with great success.

However overnight contact lens wear is not for everyone.

 

CooperVision have recently launched the first soft contact lens proven to slow the progression of myopia.

 

MiSight packshot

CooperVision MiSight 1 day – are daily disposable lenses that are suitable for myopic children as young as 8 years old.

 

MiSight lenses have been shown to reduce myopia progression by nearly 60%.\

 

Natural daylight has been shown to help as well – At least 14 hours per week spent outside will reduce the progression of myopia.

Slowing the progression of myopia has long term benefits for the health of the eyes. High level myopic eyes are at greater risk of developing Glaucoma and Retinal detachments and can develop cataracts at an earlier age than normal.
