About MiyoSmart®

MiyoSmart® is an innovative spectacle lens for myopia control developed by Hoya together with its research partner, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Based on a two-year clinical trial results, MiyoSmart® is proven to curb myopia progression by up to 59% and halt myopia progression by 21.5% with its award-winning D.I.M.S. (Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments) technology. 

A breakthrough in myopia control

Myopia Today

An estimated 5 billion people, or half of the global population, could be affected by short-sightedness by 2050.1

With more near-work activities, less time spent outdoors, the high value placed on education performance and many other combined and interacting hereditary, behavioral and environmental factors, the incidence of myopia in children is expected to increase2

Features and benefits

1. D.I.M.S. Technology

MiyoSmart® with D.I.M.S. technology is comprised of a central optical zone for correcting refractive error and multiple defocus
segments evenly surrounding the central zone (extending to the mid-periphery) of the lens to control myopia progression.
This provides clear vision and myopic defocus simultaneously at all viewing distances. The lens makes use of the natural
homeostatic mechanism known as “emmetropisation”, whereby the eyeball adapts and shapes to receive focused images as it does
for normal vision.

- Curb myopia progression on average by 59%3

- Slow axial eye growth on average by 60%3

- Halts myopia progression in 21.5% of Children3

2. EYE SHIELD

As children are active, there is a need for the lens material to be impact-resistant to provide their eyes the protection they need. MiyoSmart®
uses polycarbonate 1.59 which is a highly impact resistant material that has passed the high velocity impact drop ball test.4

- Impact-resistant material safe for active kids

- Provides UV protection

- Is light and thin

Taking care of eyesight. Wearers should:

1. Spend more time outdoors, minimum 2 hours a day.

2. Take breaks from long intensive screen time or near-work.

3. Take note of ergonomics,such as proper lighting, posture, keeping the recommended working distance are very important to keep your eyes healthy while doing the near-work.

4. Get regular eye check-ups to ensure that myopia or other vision problems are detected and treated early, reducing the worsening of vision, myopia progression and potential complications of high myopia.

* Myopia progression (SER) by 59% and axial elongation (AL) decreased by 60% compared with those wearing SV lenses.
