Myopia Control

At Val Hughes we offer the latest advancements in contact lenses with MiSight by CooperVision. These specialist lenses help to manage and control myopia in a way that is both comfortable and simple.


The prevalence of myopia is growing at a worryingly rapid rate; it is thought that in the very near future it will more than double worldwide. Therefore it is crucial that we have proven solutions in place to help reduce the symptoms of short-sightedness for those that suffer from myopia.


How do MiSight lenses help?


CooperVision's innovative design controls myopia progression by increasing the axial length whilst correcting the refractive error. By using single-fit contact lenses, this offers myopia patients a convenient and easy-to-use solution compared to other forms of therapy. 


The lenses are worn each day, just like many other daily soft disposable contacts and do not affect normal routines and activities such as reading, playing, working, studying and computer use.


MiSight lenses substantially slow myopia progression and help elongate the eye in both children and adults without causing discomfort. Results in those that continually wore the lenses daily for 3 years showed extremely high levels of satisfaction from both adult users and parents of children wearing the lenses.
