The smart way to curb myopia in children.

MiYOSMART

An estimated 5 billion people, or half the global population, could be affected by myopia by 2050.

Myopia is a global concern.

Annual myopia progression rate is most rapid under 10 years of age. Significantly greater rates of progression can be seen especially in children with high myopia.

If left untreated, myopia can lead to lasting vision problems, but together we can curb myopia in children.

An innovative spectacle lens.

This spectacle lens is based on revolutionary Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments (D.I.M.S.) Technology. This was developed in collaboration with The Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2014. MiYOSMART spectacle lenses are easy to fit and look just like a regular single vision lens.

 

In 2018, MiYOSMART spectacle lenses won the Gold Prize, Grand Award & Special Gold Award International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva, Switzerland. In 2020, they also won the Silmo d’Or Award in the Vision category at the Silmo Paris Optical Fair.

A revolutionary technology.

With the exclusive non-invasive D.I.M.S. Technology, the lens provides a full vision correction and has a ring shaped treatment zone to slow down myopia progression. The combination of the focus zone and treatment zone provides clear vision and manages myopia simultaneously.

Testimonials

“Everyone involved in eyecare should be excited about Myopia management and how we can help protect the sight of the next generation. We jumped into dispensing MiYOSMART. It is simple to dispense after the excellent accreditation training from HOYA. We have had minimal issues with non-tolerance to the lens with most wearers saying they are unaware of any major visual discomfort”

 Ian Curtis, Owner at Curtis Opticians

"I've been recommending and providing myopia management for a number of years now, but the lack of a proven spectacle lens option has always been a significant challenge for those kids and parents who don't feel comfortable taking the leap into contact lens wear. Since I've had access to MiYOSMART I've been able to help many more kids. We've had an amazing response from the kids who have all adapted to the lens with no problems. The biggest thing I think is that parents feel reassured that they are taking some positive action when it comes to their children's eyesight."

Stephen Carr, Optometrist and Owner at Summers Optical
