Did you know that 30% of the world’s population currently suffers from myopia, also known as nearsightedness? What’s more, that number is expected to jump to a worrying 50% by 2050!
The dangers of myopia go beyond simply having less-than-perfect eyesight. Children with moderate and severe myopia have a much greater risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases as adults. That’s why it’s more important than ever before to have a convenient and effective way to stop or slow myopia’s progression.
This is where prescription Miyosmart eyeglass lenses from HOYA come in.
Myopia Progression and Miyosmart Lenses
Myopia results from the eyeball being too long, so light entering the eye is focused in front of the retina rather than directly on it, causing blurry vision.
During childhood, myopia progression can cause the retina (the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye) to begin to stretch, strain and thin. These stressors can significantly increase the likelihood that your child will develop serious eye diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma and retinal detachment later in life.
Miyosmart eyeglass lenses, which are completely non-invasive, help slow or even stop myopia progression, reducing your child’s long-term risk of eye complications.
Using patented Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments (D.I.M.S.) technology, prescription Miyosmart lenses alternate focus and defocus areas so that your child can experience great vision while curbing myopia progression by an average of 60%.
Maintaining Comfort and Durability
Miyosmart lenses are incredibly versitile. They can be fit to any eyeglass frame your child chooses. They’re also impact-resistant and include anti-reflective coating along with UV protection against the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays.
To protect your child’s future eye health and vision, consider ordering HOYA Miyosmart lenses for your child’s next pair of glasses.

Who benefits most from myopia control?
Children of all ages can benefit from myopia control, but it’s most advantageous for kids aged 7 to 14, or who already have high (severe) myopia. These groups tend to see the most drastic myopia progression if no action is taken to stop or slow it, putting them at the highest risk for future vision problems.
What eye diseases and conditions have been linked to myopia?
The elongation of the eyeball that is characteristic of myopia can cause tissues at the back of the eye to stretch and thin out, resulting in tears and the formation of scar tissue at the back of the eye. This may result in conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts and retinal detachment. Successful myopia control can slow or stop myopia progression, reducing the risk of developing these conditions.
