MiSight® 1 day is the first on-label soft daily lens for myopia management proven through long-term scientific studies to reduce the worsening of myopia.1 In addition to receiving CE certification in Europe, the latest crowning achievement is the first FDA approval in the U.S. market for a contact lens that inhibits myopia. The official press release can be found here.
This lens is designed for young people with an indication of progressive myopia. Nearsightedness in itself does not have to be dangerous. However, nearsightedness can be especially pronounced in young people. The most significant increase usually occurs between the ages of 6 and 17.2 High myopia frequently leads to serious eye problems such as cataracts, glaucoma and retinal detachment.3 MiSight® daily lenses have been specially developed to minimize the worsening of myopia in children in order to prevent high myopia - and the associated vision problems - later in life. This is called myopia management. Myopia management is customized. A Myopia Management Expert can properly advise you on which treatment is best for your child. The advantage of MiSight® day lenses is that they are very comfortable and very easy to use. Children can wear lenses as young as 8 years old on average.4
If you are nearsighted you see well at close range and see blurry far away. This blurred vision is because your eye grows in (axis) length so much that the image you are looking at is no longer depicted on the retina but in front of it. Your eye is too long, so to speak. If the eye grows even longer (high myopia), the risk of unpleasant eye diseases such as retinal detachment increases dramatically. This growth is rapid in young people in particular.3 The unique design of MiSight® 1 day has special treatment zones with ActivControl™ technology. Special rings have been inserted into the contact lens that actively inhibit the worsening of myopia while allowing you to have sharp vision regardless of different pupil diameters and lens concentrations.
MiSight® 1 day is a daily lens and should be replaced every day. For maximum effect of the therapy, a minimum wear time of 6+ days per week and 10+ hours per day is important.
Wearing contact lenses carries a potential risk of infection. Therefore, you should always follow the advice of the specialist and handle lenses correctly. For example, lenses should never be cleaned with water or saliva; this contains bacteria that can be harmful to the eye. Before inserting lenses, always wash your hands thoroughly with mild soap. Avoid soaps that contain lanolin, creams and/or perfumes. Rinse your hands well with water and dry them with a clean, lint-free tea towel. Do not put your lenses in if your eyes are irritated. See the package insert for all the information on how to properly clean, store and use lenses. The package insert can be obtained from the specialist. The specialist works according to a protocol and makes sure you are properly informed and your eyes are checked regularly. To confirm that both parties will follow the safety instructions, the specialist will ask you to sign a lens agreement.
Before using your soft lenses, always read the package insert, to be provided by your contact lens specialist.
MiSight® 1 day is a daily disposable contact lens. You replace these lenses daily. You therefore do not need contact lens fluids for cleaning and maintaining these lenses.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which contact lens is best for my eyes?It depends entirely on you and your eyes. During an eye exam an eye care specialist assesses your eyes and looks at the strength and shape of your eye, among other things. You personal situation is also evaluated: When do you want to use them? How often? In what work environment? Based on all the measurements, you can choose the best lenses together with the specialist. Visit your nearest optician for an eye exam or consultation.
How do I clean my lenses?It is important to clean your contact lenses daily. The moment you remove your lenses, it is important to clean, rinse and disinfect them with the recommended lens solution as prescribed or advised by your contact lens specialist. Contact lens cases should also be emptied, cleaned and rinsed daily, as they can be a source of bacterial growth. Importantly, lenses, lens cases and other lens-related products should not come into contact with (tap) water because of the increased risk of microbial keratitis.
What should I look for in lenses for my child?Children can wear lenses as young as 8 years old on average. (1) Before a child can start wearing lenses, the eye care specialist explains what it means to wear the lenses and the responsibilities involved for the child, such as in the area of hygiene.
