Soft Multifocal Contact Lenses
“MiSight is FDA approved therapy for myopia control”
Multifocal soft contact lenses are dual focus lenses with treatment zones. These peripheral near vision zone of center-distance multifocal lenses reduce hyperopic defocus. As a result, the peripheral light is focused in front of the retina, the reduces the elongation of the eye and slows myopia progression.
MiSight 1-Day contact lenses are the only contact lenses that are approved by the FDA to manage myopia in children ages 8-12 years. Evidence suggests that with a minimum use of 10 hours/day for 6 days a week, a mean change in axial length was 52% less in the treatment zone versus the control group. Also, there was a reduction of 59% in the refractive error over the course of 3 years of the study.
