Myopia Control Contact Lenses for Children

Providing cutting-edge vision solutions to the Fort Worth area 

MiSight®

Your child leads an active life and myopia, or nearsightedness, can make your child’s favorite activities like playing sports, spending time with their friends, or even studying for school turn into a big struggle when they have problems with their distance vision. Fort Worth Eye Center now offers new FDA-approved contact lenses called MiSight® that work to slow the progression of myopia in children.

MiSight® 1 Day Contact Lenses

MiSight® 1 Day Contact Lenses are soft and easy to use making them perfect for children! They’ll allow your child to see clearly and slow myopia progression.

Slow the Progression of Your Child’s Myopia With MiSight®

Myopia

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is the inability to see objects clearly at a distance. This is caused by the shape of the cornea. When your eyeball becomes too long the light that enters your eye doesn’t allow things to focus correctly. In recent years, the percentage of nearsighted children has risen dramatically.

Slow The Progression

Slowing the progression of myopia in children is important due to the longer-term implications of the condition. In the short-term, myopia can have an impact on your child’s ability to perform at school, play sports, or participate in other activities. However, in the long-term, children whose myopia has been allowed to progress are at an increased risk for vision-threatening eye conditions such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, early cataracts, and myopic macular degeneration – a leading cause of blindness.  Thankfully, there are a number of treatment options for slowing the progression of myopia in your child including:

Increase Time Outside

Environmental factors affect our vision. Encouraging outdoor activities to increase your child’s outdoor time promotes healthy eye growth. It can also slow the progression of myopia and reduce the chance of onset!

Decrease Screen Time

As the use of digital devices by younger children in the United States continues to climb, so does the prevalence of myopia in our young patients. While this might seem difficult, decreasing your child’s screen time is an effective way to decrease childhood myopia. Utilizing the 20-20-20 rule (take a 20-second break to view something 20 feet away every 20 minutes) can also help.

Treatments and Prescriptions

Treatment for myopia progression is also available – including effective tools like the MiSight® contact lenses.

MiSight®

Fort Worth Eye Center is extremely excited to be one of the first optometry offices in the DFW metroplex to offer this innovative new contact lens approach to slow the progression of myopia (nearsightedness) in children. Start managing your child’s myopia with a comprehensive approach built around MiSight® 1 day contact lenses, the first and only FDA-approved soft contact lens proven to slow the progression of myopia in children age 8-12 at the initiation of treatment.

MiSight® 1 day is a soft contact lens that uses ActivControlTM Technology to slow the elongation of the eyes. ActivControlTM Technology can simultaneously correct your child’s vision today while training their eyes to resist growing longer.

Why Choose MiSight

MiSight are daily disposable lenses, which is the safest type of contact lens with the lowest incidence of adverse events and lowest infection risk (statistically around 2 in 10,000 wearers, per year).

No cleaning or disinfection products are required as used lenses are discarded and replaced daily. While maintaining good hygiene practices is still important, it is less critical than with Ortho K.

Candidates for MiSight

MiSight is FDA approved for prescriptions up to -6.00D with low amounts of astigmatism.

Lasik Consultations

We offer many treatment options beyond Ortho-K lenses to help you improve your quality of life with clear vision, including LASIK surgery. LASIK is a laser surgery vision correction that uses ultraviolet light to make a permanent change to your visual acuity by altering the shape of the cornea to correct axial elongation of the eye. If you’re tired of wearing glasses or daytime contact lenses, LASIK is an excellent option.
