CooperVision® Expands MiSight® 1 day to Cover Nearly 100%
of Spherical Prescriptions for Children with Myopia

Expanded Range of up to -10.00D Makes Myopia Management
a Possibility for More Children

SOUTHAMPTON, UNITED KINGDOM, 8th JUNE 2021—CooperVision have announced that its MiSight® 1 day contact lenses will be available in higher prescriptions from June 2022. The expanded range—covering -0.25D to -10.00D (0.50D steps after -6.00D)— means that MiSight® 1 day covers 99.97% of prescriptions for Asian children – and 99.97% for Caucasian children – who have myopia and less than 1D of astigmatism.[1] The range extension for this innovative, specially designed lens will allow even more children to benefit from myopia management.

MiSight® 1 day contact lenses are backed by the longest-running soft contact lens study among children. The clinical trial has proven that MiSight® 1 day works for nearly all children with myopia,[2] cuts the worsening of myopia by half,[3]§ works at any age a child starts treatment (ages 8+),3 works for as long as the child wears them3 and that myopia management benefits from MiSight® 1 day are retained after treatment.[4],[5]

With myopia on the rise globally,[6] an increasing number of children may require the higher prescriptions that MiSight® 1 day lenses will offer.

“Every diopter matters, particularly for children whose worsening myopia may have already placed them at a higher risk for conditions such as myopic maculopathy and glaucoma.[7] While early treatment is best, it’s never too late to start,” said Elizabeth Lumb, BSc (Hons) MCOptom, FBCLA, Director of Global Professional Affairs, Myopia Management, CooperVision, “Even older children starting with MiSight® 1 day have seen the worsening of their myopia cut by half.”║3

As a global leader in myopia control and management for children, CooperVision believes that options must be available for as many children as possible. With MiSight® 1 day’s range extension, eye care professionals in the UK & Ireland and in more than 30 other countries can have even greater impact.

90% of myopic eyes respond to MiSight® 1 day treatment; ages 11-15 at start of wear, n=90.

§Using measured and modeled data, pooled across ages (8-17), MiSight® 1 day slowed myopia progression by an average of approximately 50%.

Children with myopia fit with MiSight® 1 day contact lenses ages 8-15 continued to experience slowed myopia progression as long as they remained in treatment.

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 average myopic progression rates.
