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.

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.

Can we reconsider contact lenses?

Contact lenses offer numerous functional, psychological and myopia controlling benefits for children. What should you do if a parent or patient says no to contact lenses for their child, and you consider it an ideal option? How can you approach communication to convey the safety and benefits?

The NaturalVue Multifocal Contact Lens – Astigmatism ‘masking’ or ‘correcting’?

When prescribing myopia controlling contact lenses for children, daily disposables are the safest modality. Only spherical corrections are available, though, which can impact lens selection for children with astigmatism. The NaturalVue Multifocal contact lens is suggested for up to 2D of astigmatism, much higher than is typical for spherical CL designs. Is is ‘masking’ astigmatism, or ‘partially correcting’ it instead?

NaturalVue multifocal contact lens fitting and astigmatism

The NaturalVue Multifocal contact lens is a daily disposable which may slow myopia. It is recommended for low astigmatism, as is typical for spherical contact lenses, but its unique optical profile has led practitioners to ask if it can be fit to patients with higher levels of astigmatism. Read this case which highlights the dynamics of a young visual system, using the fitting guide and finding the best solution for a very high myope.

Optimizing distance vision with MiSight 1 day

Why might a patient experience blurred distance vision with MiSight 1 day contact lenses? Lens fit, centration, prescription and adaptation can all feature. Learn more about the frequency and management of these cases, including the reported outcomes in scientific studies.

Which contact lens should we choose for sports?

If a child is wearing spectacles or using atropine as their primary myopia control treatment, which contact lens should we choose for sports? Is a myopia controlling contact lens needed if it will only be for occasional wear? Here we discuss the options and clinical considerations based on the individual patient.

Choosing an instrument to measure axial length

The value and importance of axial length measurement in myopia control is growing. As you offer myopia control to more patients, you could start to consider which instrument to use to measure axial length. How do ultrasound and interferometry instruments compare in accuracy? What about the new generation combination instruments? Here we address the practicalities of axial length measurement.
