DreamLite® ortho-k lenses by CooperVision SEC receive European approval for slowing myopia progression
Expanding the world’s largest portfolio of evidence-based myopia management interventions to give eye care professionals multiple options
Eerbeek, June 1, 2021 — DreamLite® night lenses by CooperVision Specialty EyeCare (SEC) have received the CE mark for slowing myopia progression in children and young adults. This popular orthokeratology contact lens already had a CE mark for the correction of myopia as a product and has now also received a CE mark for myopia management. This is in conjunction with MiSight® 1 day, CooperVision SEC’s soft day lens for myopia management.
CooperVision has the largest portfolio of evidence-based myopia management interventions worldwide. This gives eye care specialists multiple approved options for fighting the global myopia epidemic and provides them with support in tailoring the approach for each child and family.
Ron Beerten, Head of Professional Services EMEA: “It’s great that this CE mark for myopia management applies to the entire DreamLite® range. In doing so, we offer the opportunity for everyone to wear night lenses, which are proven to have a myopia-inhibiting effect.”
DreamLite® night lenses can be used for myopia management in children with a refraction of -0.75 D to -5.00 D and a cylindrical refraction with a maximum of -2.50 D. A two-year study showed that DreamLite® night lenses reduced axial length growth by 63% at high myopias compared to the control group of single lens eyeglasses – a total reduction of 0.32 mm. The lenses are currently available in Europe, the Middle East and China.
