Together, we can tackle 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 tackle myopia in children.

An innovative spectacle lens.

This spectacle lens based on revolutionary Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments (D.I.M.S.) Technology was developed in cooperation with The Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2014. MiYOSMART is easy to fit, just like regular single vision lens. There are no limitations for the frame choice.

 

In 2018, the MiYOSMART lens won the Gold Prize, Grand Award & Special Gold Award International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva, Switzerland. In 2020, it 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 corrects the visual defect on its entire surface and has a ring shaped treatment area to slow down myopia progression. The alternation of the focus area and defocus area provides clear vision and manages myopia simultaneously.
