CooperVision MiSight® 1 Day Contact Lens Now Available in Canada
The CooperVision MiSight® 1 day contact lens is now available for fitting by Eye Care Professionals. It is the world’s first one-day soft contact lens clinically proven to substantially slow the progression of myopia in children.
“In the short term, myopia robs children of their ability to fully participate in everyday life,” said Alexandra Donkin, Country Manager, CooperVision Canada. “Correcting it is only part of the battle, since the condition can worsen as a child matures. The MiSight® 1 day contact lens has been specifically developed to control that progression, which can significantly reduce the risk of myopia-related complications and vision loss later in life.”
For Eye Care Professionals, MiSight® 1 day is as easy to fit as a single-vision soft contact lens. They benefit from repeatable outcomes with minimal chair time and follow-up visits, compared to therapies such as OrthoK.
The lens was also designed for children’s ease of use and parental peace of mind. In a multi-centre study, 100 percent of children who had never worn contact lenses before found MiSight® 1 day easy to remove after one month of wear. After a single month of wear, 85 percent of children said the lenses were easy to insert4. Children were found to have not changed their daily activities, and their wearing experiences were similar to those of children wearing a single-vision lens.
