At Honour Optometry, we’re always looking for ways to improve eye care for our patients. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the Hoya MiyoSmart lenses, a new approach to managing myopia, commonly known as short-sightedness. This condition, where distant objects appear blurred, has seen a significant rise, especially among children, calling for effective strategies to manage its progression. Traditional methods have provided some relief, but the need for more advanced solutions has been evident.
An estimated 5 billion people, or half the global population, could be affected by myopia by 2050*. Addressing this, Hoya MiyoSmart lenses incorporate D.I.M.S. (Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments) Technology. These lenses not only correct myopic refractive error but also significantly slow down myopia progression. This technology, as effective as contact lenses, offers a comfortable, non-invasive alternative. With MiyoSmart Sun, Hoya takes an additional step, merging myopia control with protection from intense sunlight. While the outdoors can benefit eye health, it also exposes eyes to harmful UV rays. MiyoSmart Sun lenses thus offer dual benefits: managing myopia progression and shielding eyes from UV-A and UV-B rays, reducing long-term ocular damage risk.
Understanding the long-term benefits of controlling myopia progression is crucial. Effectively managing myopia from a young age can significantly reduce the risk of developing more severe ocular conditions in later life, such as retinal detachment or glaucoma. Therefore, early intervention with MiyoSmart lenses is key in maintaining eye health over a lifetime.
At Honour Optometry, we understand the importance of adapting to new advancements in eye care. The introduction of Hoya MiyoSmart lenses aligns with our dedication to providing the best solutions for our patients.
