A breakthrough in myopia management

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 increase.2

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.


- Curb myopia progression in average by 59%3


- Slow axial eye growth in average by 60%3

2. EYE SHIELD

As children are active, there is a need for the lens material to be impact-resistant to offer their eyes the protection they need. MiYOSMART lenses
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

- UV protection

- Light and thin

Taking care of eyesite. 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.
