The incidence of myopia is expected to increase dramatically due to lifestyle changes: children are increasingly engaged in close visual activities such as using digital devices, studying and reading, and they spend less and less time outdoors. Hereditary, behavioral and environmental factors can also play a big role here.
Early identification of myopia in youngers can not only fix the sight, but it can help to slow down myopia progression as well, preserving sight and eyes well-being for the future.
Remote objects are not clearly perceived. Rays focus on the central area before the retina and on the periphery behind the retina.
The image from remote is clear, but rays are brought back on the retina in the central area, while they are not in the peripherical one. Eyes react by increasing the length of the eyeball, worsening the myopia by so doing.
MiyoSmart with D.I.M.S. technology is a mono-focal lens which presents hundreds of segments in the convex surface which create myopic de-focus. This innovation builds alternative focus and de-focus areas (with a 50:50 balance), allowing to have in front of the pupillary diameter (whatever size it is) the power to focus and the area of treatment. This allows to correctly measure the power of lens needed to correct the refractive error allowing a clear view from remote.
To manage myopic progression effectively, the bearer has to constantly experience defocus, even with eye rotation. This implies a certain number of defocus segments spread over the lens surface. Thanks to its decades of experience in production and development of sight lenses, Hoya Vision Care managed to include the D.I.M.S. technology and successfully produced a smooth surface lens with multiple segments. Thanks to an excellent design and an innovative manufacturing technology, MiyoSmart is aesthetically very close to a monofocal lens.
*The participants who completed the two-year trial using MiyoSmart D.I.M.S. lenses, had a slowdown in the progression of myopia by an average of 59% and in the lengthening of the eyeball by an average of 60%, if compared to those ones wearing monofocal lenses.
Children are very active in their everyday life and this is why they need an impact-resistant material. MiyoSmart is built with 1.59 material, very impact-resistant. It is also protective against UV rays.
*ANSI Z87.1 High-Speed Impact Test: The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has established the most shrinking standard of bullet impact and penetration for ophthalmic lenses. The standard specifies that high impact lenses must pass the “high speed” test where 1/4″ of steel balls are fired at the lens at a speed of 150 feet per second. Polycarbonate exceeds ANSI Z87.1, the highest standard of high impact resistance that ensures full protection for all children wearing this kind of lenses.
MiyoSmart presents a specific anti-glare treatment, easy to clean and long-lasting, perfect for children.
