As the name suggests these are contact lenses that are worn once, through the day and then discarded in the evening. When worn, they give clear and comfortable vision as well as slowing down myopic progression.
There are 2 main brands that we offer at Hammond Opticians. Both Misight and NaturalVue® contact lenses have been shown to significantly reduce the rate of myopia progression in children and are worn through the day similar to standard one day soft lenses. It is recommended that they are worn for a minimum of six days a week.
Recent studies have shown that using NaturalVue or Misight contact lenses can be clinically effective for myopia progression control. This means that if your child is fitted early enough with these lenses, there is a strong chance that they will end up with less than half the strength of myopia than if fitted with conventional contact lenses or spectacles.
These contact lenses are very comfortable to wear and completely safe for children from the age of 7 years (with parental support). Once fitted, our expert contact lens practitioners will arrange a care plan for your child to ensure that they continue to use them safely and successfully. Best of all, by being part of our iComplete member plan, all consultations are free of charge
