Nearsightedness, or ‘myopia’, typically starts in childhood and usually requires glasses or contact lenses to see clearly for activities like viewing a whiteboard at school. Nearsighted children may experience an increase in their nearsightedness as they grow, resulting in a greater reliance on glasses or contacts.
MiSight® 1 day is an award-winning2,3,4 dual-focus soft contact lens that uses ActivControl™ Technology to slow the elongation of the eyeball1. The ActivControl™ Technology in MiSight® 1 day utilizes an optic zone concentric ring design with alternating vision correction and treatment zones. Two zones are vision correction zones with the label power of the contact lens, and the alternating two zones are treatment zones with 2 diopters of defocus to slow the progression of myopia. This design allows the child to see clearly while benefiting from the treatment effect.

Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, happens when your child’s distance vision begins to blur because their eyeball is becoming longer as they grow. For more information click here.
Myopia (nearsightedness) can be caused by genetics and long hours on the computer, phone or electronic devices. With an increase in nearsightedness it may affect the health of your eyes. For more information click here.
