New data published by CooperVision has revealed that close to one in four children fitted with MiSight 1 day contact lenses remained clinically stable for myopia after six years.

The findings were presented at the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s virtual annual meeting (October 9).

The six-year results for MiSight 1 day reveal that 23% of children fitted with MiSight 1 day contact lenses experienced a refractive change of less than -0.25D (spherical equivalent) over six years.

Director of research programmes at CooperVision, Paul Chamberlain, highlighted: “There is now even more reason to recognise the substantial capability of this unique dual-focus contact lens.”

CooperVision has highlighted that the safety profile, wearing time, and visual acuity of children wearing MiSight 1 day within the trial has remained “excellent” at the six-year mark.

Research presented as part of a virtual poster session during the meeting explored the relationship between age and myopia progression among MiSight contact lens wearers.

The study highlighted that the treatment effect may be dependent on the age of the wearer, with the findings reinforcing the need for early intervention.
