With every diopter of myopic progression, a child has an increased risk of developing glaucoma, cataracts, retinal detachment, and myopic maculopathy later in life.1 In this CooperVision video, a parent shares how her experience with untreated myopia have led to risks to ocular health later in life, and she explains why starting her children on a myopia management treatment plan has become a priority. Watch the full video to see how CooperVision’s MiSight 1 day contact lenses for myopia control* have made an impact on children’s vision and quality of life:
* Indications for use: MiSight® 1 day (omafilcon A) soft (hydrophilic) contact lenses for daily wear are indicated for the correction of myopic ametropia and for slowing the progression of myopia in children with non-diseased eyes, who at the initiation of treatment are 8-12 years of age and have a refraction of -0.75 to -4.00 diopters(spherical equivalent) with ≤ 0.75 diopters of astigmatism. The lens is to be discarded after each removal.
