Review of Myopia Management Editor-in-Chief John Sailer recently interviewed three optometrists certified in CooperVision’s Brilliant Futures program to hear about their experiences with the company’s MiSight 1 day contact lenses.
These lenses have garnered a lot of attention, as MiSight 1 day contact lenses are currently the only FDA-approved soft contact lenses with proven results in slowing myopia progression in patients starting as young as 8.* During this conversation, the optometrists Dr. Justin Kwan, Dr. Andrew Neukirch, and Dr. Brianna Rhue all came to the same consensus: CooperVision’s MiSight 1 day contact lenses produced great results from a medical standpoint and also went over well with young patients and their parents.
*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.
