When axial length progresses, but not refractive error

In this case, we meet a child whose axial length has progressed 0.4mm in one year, even with myopia control treatment. Yet, his refractive error hasn’t changed. What could cause this and what is the best course of action?

Time spent outdoors improves success with MiSight 1 day

This paper identified time spent outdoors as the key factor in predicting better myopia control outcomes in children wearing with MiSight 1 day contact lenses. Other factors which weren’t predictive included age, refraction, binocular vision findings, pupil size and time spent at near.

Clinical Leader Case Study: Managing myopia with the family

This case is highlights that myopia management decision making includes much more than a child’s refraction. Learn how Keyur Patel involved the parent in the conversation and decision making, to determine the starting myopia management option for now, as well as considering the future.

Clinical Leader Case Study: From pre-myopia through to myopia control with contact lenses

Myopia management starts with identifying pre-myopes and commencing the discussion with parents, so that future myopia control strategies can be successfully recommended. In our Clinical Leader Case Study format, read how Indie Grewal approached parent communication to smooth the way for eventual myopia control contact lens fitting.

Exploring the limits of myopia control efficacy

Considering even emmetropic eyes elongate, what are the limits of myopia control efficacy? This novel analysis explores the absolute axial elongation of treated and untreated myopes in the MiSight 3-year clinical trial in comparison to previously published models of myopic and emmetropic eye growth. The results indicate a potential limit to the short-term percentage efficacy of myopia control treatments.

Enhancing Near Vision With MiSight 1 day

MiSight 1 day is a dual focus optical design. Does this affect children’s near vision? What can be done to manage any issues with near vision as noticed by wearers? Read more about expectations and adaptation.

Mastering MiSight 1 day

What can you expert in short-term fitting, vision, handling and comfort outcomes in children through to long term outcomes in myopia control, vision and ocular health? This article provides the scientific and clinical basis to get started and continue successfully fitting MiSight 1 day for myopic children.

Why MiSight 1 day is not a multifocal contact lens

MiSight 1 day is a dual focus contact lens – it’s not a multifocal as it does not provide an ‘add’ at near. When considering a first correction for a young myope, how should we prioritize both myopia correction and control? Read more in this case.
