Introducing MiSight

MiSight are scientifically proven soft daily contact lenses that can not only correct Myopia in children, but can treat short sight by slowing down the progression.

It is important that we try and catch Myopia as early as possible and MiSight lenses are designed especially for children aged 6 plus. Research shows that if either parent is short-sighted, there is a clear genetic possibility that their child may be also. If both parents are short sighted, the risk is even greater. The earlier it is caught, the better the chance of preventing short sightedness from progressing.

Performing as well as EyeDream (overnight lens correction), MiSight lenses are extremely convenient, as daily throw-aways there’s no cleaning, disinfection or worrying about lost lenses.

The first signs of Myopia in children may include:

  • Squinting/screwing up the eyes
  • Sitting too close to the TV
  • Complaining they cannot see the board in school
  • Holding books too close to their face
  • Parents may notice that if they point to something in the distance, their child cannot see it.

As soon as any of these signs are noticed, it is vital that your child see’s an optician.

 

Why control Myopia progression?

  • If caught early and preventative measures such as EyeDream or MiSight are used, the results could mean a lower prescription, giving better vision when not wearing glasses or contact lenses.
  • For children who would go on to develop high levels of myopia (for example -6.00D or more) a reduction in progression of myopia could mean not only a lower prescription, giving better vision when not wearing glasses, or contact lenses, but also a lower incidence of eye diseases associated with high myopia, such as retinal detachment or glaucoma in later life.

Earlam and Christopher are 1 of only a small number of opticians in the whole country who can prescribe MiSight.
