Myopia Management Made Easywith MiSight® 1 day* QuickStart

MiSight® 1 day is easy, and it’s always been easy. †1,2  But did you know that it’s easier

than ever to get started in myopia management and prescribing MiSight® 1 day to age-

appropriate children? 

Whether you’re brand new to MiSight® 1 day or have an established myopia

management practice, the new MiSight® QuickStart program has all the information and

tools in a format that’s easily accessible, easy to digest, and easy to implement to help

you get started or accelerate your MiSight® 1 day business.  


Here’s a look at the suite of quick-hitting resources in the MiSight® QuickStart Program.


Get Caught up on the Myopia Management Landscape in

Fifteen Minutes


The requirement for certification has been eliminated, and the flagship MiSight®

QuickStart video provides ECPs with the necessary tools to get started with MiSight® 1

day and ready for success in under 15 minutes. In the short video that runs about the

length of an average TED Talk, CooperVision’s Head of Myopia Management, Dr. Justin

Kwan, OD, FAAO, provides a quick and thorough overview on everything you need to

know to start controlling myopia with MiSight® 1 day.


Topics covered in the video include:


  • The design, safety profile ,3  and science behind MiSight® 1 day, in addition to the MiSight® 1 day clinical study, which is the longest continuous soft contacts lens study for myopia control. 

  • The importance of managing myopia and the potential eye health consequences of progressive myopia. 4-7

  • Myopia risk factors

  • Children’s success as contact lens wearers, and the benefits beyond vision

  • correction ‡§|2,8-9

  • The parent educational journey in myopia management

  • How to talk about myopia in easy, understandable terms


Master the Main Points of the Contact Lens Evaluation in a 5-Minute Video


The contact lens evaluation video runs five minutes, mirroring the amount of time it

takes for a MiSight® 1 day contact lens evaluation.


The MiSight® QuickStart 5-Minute contact lens evaluation video illustrates in real time

how to explain the problem and solution of myopia, answer a parent question, and

demonstrates that MiSight® 1 day is as easy to fit as a spherical contact lens. †1,2


Pick Up 1-Minute Parent Communication Tips from Successful MiSight® Prescribers


If a parent is unfamiliar with myopia, they may find it difficult to understand how their

age-appropriate child’s vision and eye health may benefit from MiSight®1 day .¶2,10  The

MiSight® QuickStart 1-Minute Parent Conversation videos feature peer MiSight® 1 day

prescribers who provide examples of easy to understand, and concise conversations

with parents of kids* with myopia about MiSight® 1 day.


Staff Training Made Easy

Successful myopia management requires a team approach. Since staff are the first and

last stop in the practice for families, they play a critical role in assisting parents in

making the best treatment decisions for their child.


The MiSight® QuickStart staff training video equips staff with all the knowledge and

tools they need, empowering them to be your myopia management champion

throughout the patient visit. The video provides education on myopia’s prevalence and

urgency to treat, the practice opportunity, the benefit of MiSight® 1 day, and essential

resources your staff can share with parents. 11,12

*Indications for use: MiSight® 1 day (omafilcon A) soft (hydrophilic) contact lenses for daily wear are indicated for the

correction of myopic ametropia and for slowing the progression of myopia in children with non-diseased eyes, who at the

initiation of treatment are 8-12 years of age and have a refraction of -0.75 to -4.00 diopters (spherical equivalent) with ≤ 0.75

diopters of astigmatism. The lens is to be discarded after each removal.

† Initial CL BVP selection and observation of fit follows same fitting protocol for single vision CLs; fit success rate same with

MiSight® 1 day and Proclear® 1 day 

‡ 138/144 children aged 8-12 were successfully fitted with either MiSight® 1 day or Proclear® 1 day daily disposable soft

contact lenses.

§ Mean wearing times at 72 month visit 13.92 hours/day (children refit to M1D) and 13.90 hours/day (children wearing M1D

for 6-year study duration)

| Children aged 8-12 at the initiation of treatment
