MiyoSmart, an ophthalmic lens designed as a non-invasive option for myopia management, has been launched by Hoya Vision Care UK.

The lens was developed in partnership with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and features Hoya’s Defocus Incorporated Multiple segments (Dims) technology.

Hoya highlighted results from a two-year clinical trial in Hong Kong, which found that children wearing Dims ophthalmic lenses had a reduction of 60% of their myopia progression compared to those wearing single vision lenses.

Andrew Sanders, professional services director at Hoya UK, said: ‘The introduction of such an effective treatment only emphasises Hoya’s innovatory stance within the optical industry and we truly can’t wait to see the difference it will make.’
