What is Myopia?

Myopia occurs when the shape of your eye becomes elongated over time. When this happens, light entering the eye focuses in front of your retina instead of on it. This makes it hard for you to see objects far away, but the ability to see nearby objects isn’t changed.

Managing myopia can differ from patient to patient, but there are a wide variety of options available. Glasses and contact lenses are the most common management tools to cope with myopia, but there are also surgical options available to permanently correct refractive errors. Depending on the severity of your myopia, your optometrist may recommend one or a combination of different management options.

Myopia Symptoms

Aside from leading to blurry vision, those with myopia can also experience:

  • Headaches
  • Ocular irritation or discomfort
  • Trouble focusing on tasks for long periods

Childhood Myopia

Myopia often develops during childhood. Research estimates that around 30% of children in Canada have some degree of myopia, which can affect their ability to learn and play. Because of this, the CAO recommends children to have an eye exam every year to help manage their vision and the health of their eyes.

Research has also found that early and prolonged use of digital devices like smartphones, computers, and tablets can raise the risk of developing myopia.

MiSight 1 Day contact lenses help slow the progression of myopia in children. To learn more about how these lenses could help your child, visit our Contact Lens Exams, Fittings, & Brands Page.

MiSight Contact Lenses for Myopia Control

MiSight 1 day contact lenses are child-friendly daily disposable soft contact lenses that can help manage myopia. These lenses use ActivControl Technology to help correct and slow myopia progression in children 8–12 at the start of their treatment.

Through ActivControl Technology, MiSight lenses focus light in front of the retina, slowing myopia progression.

MiSight lenses are designed to be comfortable and easy to use, making them an option for children who may not be suitable candidates for other myopia control treatments like ortho-k.
