What is Myopia Control?
Various forms of myopia control help slow or stop the progression of myopia, preventing nearsightedness from getting worse. One form of myopia control treatment is available through MiSight® contacts, the first and only soft contact lenses that are FDA approved to slow the progression of myopia in children age 8-12 at the start of treatment. Approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) means that the lenses have been tested over a long period and have met all the safety requirements established.
At Accent Vision Care, we are certified providers of MiSight®1 Day contact lenses. This form of myopia management is safe and proven to be effective. Kids ages 8-12 wearing MiSight® 1-day contact lenses experienced an average of 59 percent reduction of myopia progression when used over three years.²
