Give your child a better outlook on life.

Myopia is becoming a serious problem in more and more countries. In urban areas in Asia, almost 90% of young people develop myopia. This  trend continues in many part of the world. Studies predict that, by the year 2050, nearly 50 percent of the world’s population could be shortsighted. On some occasions, early myopia can lead to the development of progressive myopia, a more severe form of short-sightedness. In this situation, a child’s vision may quickly deteriorate at a fast rate and turn into high myopia. The concern with high myopia is that it significantly increases the risk of other eye problems, such as damage to the retina or even blindness.

The exact cause of myopia is relatively unknown, however a link between eye elongation and increasing myopia is apparent. Genetic factors also play an important role in myopia development, with up to 60% of children having one myopic parent. 

How MyoVision Pro lenses works

MyoVision Pro lenses work by moving the peripheral image in front of the retina, whilst maintaining sharp central vision. Maintaining the peripheral image in front of the retina appears to send a signal to the eye to reduce axial lengthening of the eye, thereby reducing the rate of myopic progression. Research has shown MyoVision lenses reduce myopic progression by up to 30% in East and South East Asian children aged between 6 and 12 years with history of parental myopia.
