The purpose of this 2 year study was to determine the effect of MiSight contact lenses used to control myopia on binocular vision and accommodation in children, as compared with children wearing SV spectacles, with the researches finding no significant differences in binocular and accommodative measures between the study groups.
In this review we explore the 6-year results for MiSight 1 day recently presented at the 2020 American Academy of Optometry meeting. Based on the abstract, children who were older at initial fitting (11-15 years) progressed similarly over 3 years to matched children who were treated for 6 years, indicating that older children could still gain a treatment effect from MiSight 1 day.
This 2019 study evaluated 3-year MiSight efficacy in a randomised clinical trial conducted across four different sites, in Singapore, Canada, Portugal and the UK to yield promising findings, with efficacy results comparable to previous studies, and overall high satisfaction reported by subjects. Eye Care Practitioners can utilise these results to confidently educate patients and their families on the efficacy of this treatment option.
The authors conducted a 2-year double blinded, randomised control trial to evaluate the efficacy of novel contact lens designs for myopia control. Lens I and II induced myopic defocus across a large portion of the retina, while Lens III and IV featured an extended depth of focus incorporating higher order aberrations to modulate retinal image quality. This technology is utilised in the Mark’Ennovy Mylo the and Seed 1-Day Pure EDOF lens.
This research summary describes the major multifocal contact lens (MFCL) research studies for myopia control, and what we still need to learn. From the first studies only a decade ago, to wearing time, commercially available lenses, the influence of BV, novel designs and more, this comprehensive review will get you all the way up to date on MFCLs.
This research showed that centre near design multifocal CL’s do not appear to reduce visual acuity at near in young accommodating myopes, but result in a slight reduction in visual acuity at distance.
Centre near design multifocal CL’s do not appear to reduce visual acuity at near in young accommodating myopes, however the results from this study suggest slight reduction in visual acuity at distance.
