MiyoSmart is a spectacles lens that is specially designed to slow down the rate of myopic progression (short-sightedness). In clinical trials it has been proven to reduce myopic progression by up to 60%.
Myopic Progression is typically associated with ‘axial elongation’ of the eyeball (eye getting longer). The stimulus for this is now understood to be ‘peripheral defocus’ in the eye which is a natural consequence of using traditional spectacle lenses or contact lenses. MiyoSmart spectacle lenses are specially designed using D.I.M.S Technology (Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments) for correcting this peripheral defocus and therefore reducing the rate of myopic progression.
