We are excited to introduce MiYOSMART lenses, the most effective non-invasive lens for reducing the progression of Myopia in children.
We can now control the myopic progression in children’s eyes with either MiSight contact lenses or MiYOSMART spectacle lenses.
This is the ‘we have a vaccine’ moment in the world of optics because being myopic means more than just needing glasses.
But why is this important?
Myopic eyes have a much higher chance of developing ocular problems such as Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration and Macular Maculopathy.
But what is myopia/short-sightedness?
Myopia occurs when the eye is physically long or your cornea is too curved. In order to correct this, a concave minus powered lens is prescribed. This correction can come in the form of contact lenses or spectacle lens which is a specific strength to force the image back to land precisely on the retina.
Myopia greatly increases the chances of serious eye problems in later life such as macular degeneration, Glaucoma and macular maculopathy.
Reducing a patients myopic progression by just 1.00DS can reduce the chance of developing myopia related ocular problems by 40%.
It is estimated that ½ of the worlds population will be short sighted by 2050.
