MiyoSmart is a special lens designed to control myopia progression in children.
Browse our FAQ and see if your child is eligible for Myosmart treatment.
How does MiyoSmart work?
MiyoSmart uses patented D.I.M.S technology by HK PolyU to control the growth of a child's eyes during key developmental stages.
"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 of the lens to control myopia progression.
This provides clear vision and myopic defocus simultaneously at all viewing distances. The lens makes use of the natural homeostatic mechanism known as "emmetropisation", whereby the eyeball adapts and shapes to receive focused images as it does for normal vision."
How effective is MiyoSmart?
Studies by PolyU and Hoya have shown that children who wear MiyoSmart had their myopia reduced by up to 60%, compared to children who wore regular lenses.
Can my child wear this?
As soon as your child show signs of myopia, they are eligible for MiyoSmart. However, children with more than-6.50 of myopia or more than -4.50 astigmatism will not benefit as much from this treatment. Consult your eye-care provider for more information.
How durable are the lenses?
MiyoSmart uses polycarbonate 1.59, which is a highly impact-resistant material that has passed the high-velocity impact drop ball test*.
Adapting to the new lenses
Expect one to two weeks to adapt, though the amount of time varies from person to person.
While adapting, the wearer should avoid:
Intensive sports activities (ex. basketball, football)
Operating any kind of vehicle (ex. cycling, scootering)
Participating in sports activities or physical education lessons at school
Using them on high staircases or in other places with different heights (ex. rock climbing)
