MiSight® 1 day contact lenses

Kids lead active, jam-packed lives. But whether they’re playing pretend, riding bikes with their friends, or learning new things at school, myopia (nearsightedness) can make it harder for them to engage in the activities they love. And as they grow, their prescription may get stronger too.

Fortunately, your child may be able to benefit from an innovative technology to help make his or her life easier and help slow down the progression of their myopia MiSight® 1 day contact lenses from CooperVision.


MiSight® 1 day with ActiveControl® Technology not only correct nearsightedness — they’re also the first soft contact lenses proven to significantly reduce the progression of myopia in children.

When wearing MiSight® 1 day contact lenses, your child can experience clear vision, freedom from glasses and continue to enjoy the activities they love!

Child-friendly, soft contact lenses that are easy-to-use and supported by rigorous scientific evidence from a 7 year clinical trial.

Convenient daily disposable contact lenses—no need to clean or store them.


Will MiSight® 1 day work for all myopic children?

MiSight® 1 day works for nearly all children with myopia

of myopic eyes respond to MiSight® 1 day treatment

The majority of children fit with MiSight® 1 day do not need a stronger prescription by their next annual eye exam.

When should you start treatment?

While early treatment is best, it's never too late to start

Even older children starting with MiSight® 1 day have their myopia progression cut by half.

When should you stop treatment?

MiSight® 1 day works for as long as the child wears them.

Treatment benefits from MiSight® 1 day continue to accumulate as long as eyes are growing.

What happens when you stop treatment?

MiSight® 1 day benefits are retained after treatment

MiSight® 1 day is the only soft contact lens studied post-treatment. Other interventions, such as atropine, have been shown to produce a rebound effect.


Who can wear MiSight® 1 day?

MiSight® 1 day covers nearly 100% of spherical prescriptions for children with myopia.

Sphere -0.25 to -6.00 (0.25 steps) -6.50 to -10.00 (0.50 steps)

  1. *90% of myopic eyes respond to MiSight® 1 day treatment; ages 11-15 at start of wear, n=90. †No clinically meaningful change in refractive error (<0.25D from baseline) in years 1-3 of the MiSight® 1 day clinical study. ‡ Using measured and modeled data, pooled across ages (8-17), MiSight® 1 day slowed myopia progression by an average of approximately 50% § Children ages 8 to 15 when starting MiSight 1 day treatment experienced a slowing of myopia progression. ‖ Children with myopia fit with MiSight® 1 day contact lenses ages 8-15 continued to experience slowed myopia progression as long as they remained wearing the lenses as prescribed. ¶12 months post-treatment, evidence indicates that no accumulated myopia control benefits were lost following 3 or 6-years of MiSight® 1 day wear (on average, for children aged 8-15 at start of wear). Instead, eye growth reverted to expected, age-normal rates. # Atropine and orthokeratology studies have shown post-treatment rebound effect, and there’s currently no post-treatment evidence for spectacles or other soft contact lenses.
