Ortho-K Costs Vs MiSight Costs
Like other kinds of vision treatments, myopia management options range in price. The overall costs depend on where you live, your doctor’s experience, your insurance coverage, your prescription, and how many pairs or boxes of lenses you need.
Please Note: Our clinic does not offer Ortho-K for myopia management. The following comparison is for information purposes only. Our clinic focuses on MiSight 1-Day disposable contacts as a pain-free alternative for children.
Cost of Orthokeratology (Ortho-K)
Range: $1,000-$4,000 (for the first year).
includes initial consultation, fitted lenses, insertion/removal training, and follow-up care.
higher myopia will require more than one set of fitted lenses and therefore will be at the higher cost range.
retainer lenses range between $300 and $500.
Costs for the second year and following years of Ortho-K use are about $750/yr. This covers the price for:
Annual consultation fees
Updated corneal topography measurements
New, updated or replacement lenses
Standard vision insurance and provincial health insurance will not cover orthokeratology treatments because they are considered elective procedures.
Health spending accounts may help cover some of the costs.
Cost of MiSight 1-Day Contact Lenses
Range: $1,300-$1,500 (for the first year)
includes initial consultation fee, a year supply of contacts, insertion/removal training, and 6 follow-up care appointments.
cost range does not change with higher myopic prescriptions.
Costs for the second year and following years of MiSight use are about $850/yr. This covers the price for:
6 month consultation fee
Updated year supply of lenses
Provincial health insurance will not cover costs of contact lenses, but standard vision insurance plans will cover some of the costs of soft, prescription contact lenses.
How Much Do MiSight 1-Day Contact Lenses Cost at Our Clinic?
MiSight Contact lens Cost: $98 per 90-pack.
Please Note: We do not sell individual MiSight contact lens boxes to patients who are not part of the MiSight Myopia Program at our clinic. Due to the Health Canada indication for use of MiSight, and because the product is primarily for use by pediatric patients, these contacts are only issued by a registered eyecare professional who also monitors patient progress.
@180 Optometry and Eyewear MiSight Myopia Program:
Starter supply: If you’re interested in having your child experience the MiSight contact lens, we would be happy to provide them with an initial consultation for $65.00 and an insertion/removal training for $75.00/hour. Unlike traditional contact lenses, trial lenses are not available with MiSight. Therefore, parents must purchase a 3-month starter pack at $196 (2-90pks @$98/box). With this, we dispense the lenses and book a 14 day follow-up appointment. At the 2-week follow-up appointment, the MiSight Follow-up Care Package is charged to proceed with the program.
Follow-up Care Package: Once Dr. Yee determines that your MiSight contact lenses are fitting correctly and the prescription is accurate, follow-ups will be done at 3 month intervals for the first year your child is on MiSight. We charge a mandatory MiSight Follow-up Care Package at $450.00 which includes up to 6 follow-up visits during the first year (2-week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months). At these follow-up appointments, your child's prescription will be updated and their next 3 month supply of contacts will be ordered (not included in the cost of our Follow-up Care Package). We recommend that children using myopia control treatments be followed by Dr. Yee every 3 months to ensure that the prescription is as accurate as possible so the treatment provides the desired outcome. We also want to ensure that your child doesn't experience contact lens-related issues that hinders them from wearing them.
Cost of the next 3 month supply of MiSight contacts is separate from the cost of the Follow-up Care Package.
Consistency in treatment is critical to achieving maximum clinical benefits. It’s recommended that children wear the MiSight contact lens 6-days a week for at least 12 hours a day.
An up-to-date backup pair of myopia control eyeglasses is strongly recommended for when they are not wearing MiSight lenses.
Results will vary with each child. Progress generally are not seen until the 6 month follow-up.
After your child's 12 month/one year follow-up, a 6 month supply of MiSight contacts can be purchased and follow-ups will be at 6 month intervals from that point forward.
