Suitable for Children
With more near-work activities, less time spent outdoors, the high value placed on education performance and many other combined and interacting hereditary, behavioral and environmental factors, the incidence of myopia in children is expected to increase.
MiyoSmart is an innovative spectacle lens for myopia control developed by Hoya together with its partner, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Based on a two-year clinical trial results, MiyoSmart is proven to curb myopia progression by an average of 60% 3 with its award-winning D.I.M.S. (Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments) technology.
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 (extending to the mid-periphery) 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.
a. Curb myopia progression in average by 60%
b. Slow axial eye growth in average by 60%3

As children are active, there is a need for the lens material to be impact-resistant to offer their eyes the protection they need. MiyoSmart uses polycarbonate 1.59 material, which has passed the high velocity impact drop ball test.
a. Impact-resistant material safe for active kid
b. UV protection
c. Light and thin
- Control of myopia progression in average by up to 60%
- Good protection offered by impact resistant lenses
- UV Protection
