MiSight® Contact Lenses For Myopia Control In Children
Myopia (short-sightedness) is a common condition that affects millions of people. The prevalence of myopia is increasing around the world as more children become myopic at a younger age₁. It is estimated that by 2050 approximately 50% of the world’s population will be myopic₂.
Myopia means your child will need to wear spectacles or contact lenses to see clearly at school and for sports and they will be at increased risk of ocular health conditions later in life₃. Children are three times more likely to become myopic if they have a myopic parent and up to seven times more likely if both parents are myopic.
Children who spend less time outdoors are also more at risk. Performing prolonged near tasks such as reading/gaming devices, low levels of outdoor activity₄,₅ and poor lighting levels can all contribute to myopia progression.
What can you do to help reduce the risk of Myopic progression in your child?
The first and simplest thing that can done is to ensure that your child undertakes outdoor activities on a regular basis.
The second thing that may help is to use contact lenses that are specifically designed to try minimalize Myopic Progression, such as Misight®.
