Nothing is more important than the health and well-being of your child. Now and into the future, you want to see your child thrive. But you may have noticed your child struggling to see clearly at a distance, making it harder to concentrate at school and have a fulfilling experience at play. Your child may have myopia, also called near-sightedness. If left untreated in children, it can lead to lasting vision problems.
The smart way to treat your child’s myopia.
What is myopia?
Illustration of a Myopic Eye
The incidence of myopia is expected to increase significantly1 as lifestyles change, with children taking part in more near-work activities like using digital devices, studying, reading, and spending less time outdoors. Hereditary, behavioural, and environmental factors also play a part.
Myopia is a growing problem and global concern.
An estimated 5 billion people, or half of the global population, could be affected by shortsightedness by 2050.1
Research shows that more time spent on near-work activities is associated with a greater likelihood of myopia.3
A safe, easy to use, effective non-invasive method to manage myopia.
MiYOSMART lenses are innovative spectacle lenses for myopia control.
Beyond correcting myopic refractive error, a two-year clinical trial shows that MiYOSMART lenses with D.I.M.S. (Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments) technology work with slowing down myopia progression on average by 60% and halt myopia progression by 21.5%,2 going a long way toward protecting your child’s vision and wellbeing in the long-term.
By slowing down the progression of myopia and its associated eyesight deterioration, children can enjoy their lives more by seeing clearly.
Better vision. Better protection.
– Slow axial eye growth by 60%.2
– Halts myopia progression by 21.5%.2
– Provides UV protection
Care goes beyond the lens.
Spend time outdoors.
Research showed that spending time outdoors may reduce risk of myopia and its progression.4
Seek regular eye care.
Get your child 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.
Gives eyes a break.
Reduce your child’s eye strain by reminding him or her to take breaks from intensive screen time or near-work.
How MiYOSMART works.
Cutting edge research conducted by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University showed that myopia progression can be controlled by providing clear vision and constant myopic defocus simultaneously.
Principles of how D.I.M.S. Technology works in MiYOSMART
The D.I.M.S. technology in MiYOSMART was clinically proven to succeed in the control of myopia progression, and in 2018, it won the prestigious Grand Prize, Grand Award, and Special Gold Medal at the 46th International Exhibitions of Inventions of Geneva, Switzerland.
