What is Myopia?
Nothing is more important than the health and wellbeing of your child, now and in the future, you want to see your child thrive and that’s the key: seeing. You may have noticed your child struggling to see clearly at a distance, making it harder to concentrate at school and have a fulfilling experience at play. Your child may have myopia, or near-sightedness.
The incidence of myopia is expected to increase significantly as lifestyle changes, with children taking part in more near-work activities like using digital devices, studying, reading and spending less time outdoors. Hereditary, behavioural and environmental factors also play a part.
Being able to have your child’s myopia diagnosed early not only corrects their vision now, but can help slow the progression of myopia and preserve their vision and eye health for the future.
MiYOSMART is a new non invasive myopia management lens which is both safe and convenient for the patient -just like ordinary spectacle lenses.
The lenses provide vision correction so the wearer will experience comfortable vision in daily wear. All this whilst working to reduce the progression of their short-sightedness. They are easy to adapt to and are suitable for full time daily wear for a wide range of activities.
How does MiYOSMART work?
Cutting edge research conducted by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University showed that myopia progression can be managed
by providing clear vision and constant myopic defocus simultaneously.
In response to the increasing levels of myopia and the levels of high myopic prescriptions, Hoya and The Hong Kong Polytechnic collaborated on research and development. By applying their focal theory to optical lenses, the research team developed D.I.M.S technology which can effectively manage myopia. All participants who completed the 2-year trial wearing MiYOSMART with DIMS Technology had myopia progression reduced by an average of 60%.*

In 2018, the MiYOSMART lens with D.I.M.S. technology was awarded the prestigious Grand Prize, Grand Award and Special Gold Medal at the 46th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva, Switzerland
