MiYOSMART – the perfect lens for managing your child’s myopia is now even more versatile than ever.

MiYOSMART lenses are made from a tough, impact resistant material and have specialised zones to help control myopia. In addition to the standard clear lens, they are also now available as a photochromic (light-adaptive) lens and as a polarised sunglass lens meaning they are the one-stop solution for all your child’s eyewear needs.

Why is it important to consider sunlight and UV protection for my child’s eyes?

Research has shown that spending time outdoors may slow down myopia progression in children. Used with adjustments in the way they do close vision tasks such as reading and writing, these are the simplest and cheapest interventions that parents can encourage and make it accessible to everyone, every day. Remember the rule 30: 30 OUT = balanced vision.

Outdoors time is important, but children’s eyes are more susceptible to injury from UV light than adults, with the most significant damage occurring under the age of 21. This is because children’s pupils (the dark centre of the eyes) are larger when they are young, and the natural lens of their eyes is more transparent. These factors allow increased levels of UV rays to reach the retina (the light-sensitive back layer of the eyes) which could cause long-term impairment

So, what can parents do to protect their children’s eyes when outdoors?

Standard prescription sunglasses can reduce the impact from sunlight and UV damage but do not offer an effective myopia management solution for myopic children.

Now for the first time, it is possible to give your children the benefits of myopia control with effective and reliable sun protection.
