A new treatment has been developed that has been proven to slow the progression of short sightedness (myopia) in children.

We understand that more children in urban areas are developing myopia. While glasses and soft contact lenses can correct the condition, until now, they have been unable to slow its rate of progression. MiSight daily disposable contact lenses not only optically correct existing myopia, giving clear distance and near vision, but MiSight has also been proven to slow the progression of myopia in most children.
