For Myopia Control

MIYOSMART

Myopia control is easy with MiyoSmart. Created by Hoya, MiyoSmart is a lens design that uses D.I.M.S. technology to provide a non-invasive solution that corrects near-sightedness while curbing myopia progression

What Is Myopia?

Myopia, or nearsightedness, occurs when light rays focus in front of the retina (instead of on). If your child struggles to see clearly at distance, your child may have myopia.

The incidence of myopia is expected to increase significantly (1) as lifestyles change, with children taking part in more near-sighted activities (2).

How Does It Work?

Miyosmart works by the method of “emmetropisation” whereby the eyeball adapts and shapes to receive focused images as it does for normal vision.

Miyosmart lenses create a myopic defocus (moving rays in front of the retina), to prevent eyeball elongation which is linked to myopia progression. 

Frequently Asked Questions

In general, MiyoSmart lenses are suitable for patients aged 6-18.

The fully prescribed distance power. That’s why the patient can see well through the lens at any given time. 

We recommend a 1 to 2 weeks adaptation period of constant wear and to avoid sports.

Yes. A two-year clinical trial which started in 2014, involving 160 children aged 8-13, showed that MiyoSmart with D.I.M.S. technology works to curb myopic progression by up to 59%. (3) 

MiyoSmart comes with only one treatment option which includes anti-reflection, scratch resistance, easy-clean, and UV protection. 

There is no contraindication for driving with MiyoSmart lenses. 

1 year – 1 time Dr. Change replacement if patient’s spherical equivalent power changes from 0.50D or more.

2 year – 1-time replacement for defective coating.
