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 simultaneously1.

MiYOSMART Sun - Protect How They See the World

With MiYOSMART Sun, slowing of myopia progression and protection from intense sunlight come together.2-6†

MiYOSMART Sun spectacle lenses adopted D.I.M.S. Technology for effective myopia management and correction of myopic refractive error, while protecting from intense sunlight and increasing eye comfort.2-6

Just like MiYOSMART clear spectacle lenses, MiYOSMART sun spectacle lenses offer 100% protection from UV-A and UV-B,7* reducing the risk of long-term damage to the eye.

*As per EN ISO 8980-3:2013 and ANSI Z80.3-2015 Standards.

†Assuming photochromic spectacle lenses are used at all times or in addition to MiYOSMART clear spectacles lenses, or polarized spectacle lenses are used in addition to MiYOSMART clear spectacle lenses. Patients should always consult their Eye Care Professionals for treatment decisions and instructions for use.
