CooperVision’s MiSight® 1 day is the first and only contact lens FDA-approved* to slow the progression of myopia in children aged 8-12 at the initiation of treatment1. Children can apply the soft, daily wear, single-use contact lenses to their eyes in the morning, wear them for at least 10 hours during the day, then dispose of them in the evening.
The FDA-approved* lens is available as part of a comprehensive myopia management approach offered by CooperVision and participating eye care practitioners.
How it Works
MiSight® 1 day is an award-winning2,3,4 dual-focus soft contact lens that uses ActivControlTM Technology to slow the elongation of the eyeball1. The ActivControlTM Technology in MiSight® 1 day utilizes an optic zone concentric ring design with alternating vision correction and treatment zones. Two zones are vision correction zones with the label power of the contact lens, and the alternating two zones are treatment zones with 2 diopters of defocus to slow the progression of myopia.
This design allows the child to see clearly while benefiting from the treatment effect.
Clinically Proven – Five Years of Data
CooperVision undertook a rigorous, multi-year, multi-country study to track how the MiSight® 1 day contact lens affected myopia progression in children aged 8–12 at the initiation of treatment5. After three years, the study concluded the lens effectively slowed myopia progression by an average of 59% and slowed the rate at which the eye lengthens by an average of 52% compared to children in the control group wearing a single-vision 1-day lens.5 Results presented after the five-year mark continued to demonstrate safety and efficacy.

Ease of Fitting, Wear, and Care
Incorporating this technology into a 1-day disposable lens was based on the safety profile of lenses that are discarded after one day of use, as well as children’s ease of use and parental peace of mind.
