Eye health innovation – the first FDA-approved contact lenses for myopia control
81% of all eye care professionals state that myopia, nearsightedness, is one of the largest problems currently affecting children’s vision. MiSight may empower eye doctors with a solution to this problem. Recently, the FDA granted approval to Coopervision for MiSight 1-Day, the first contact lenses meant to slow myopia progression in children aged 8 to 12.
Not only does myopia progression cause the need to buy new, stronger eyeglasses for kids all the time, but it also puts kids at an increased risk for developing other eye problems in the future, such as retinal detachment and glaucoma. MiSight contacts can help curb this risk. At Insight Optical, we’re excited about the launch of MiSight and we look forward to fitting kids with these contact lenses!
