What is Myopia?

Nothing is more important than the health and wellbeing of your child, now and in the future, you want to see your child thrive and that’s the key: seeing. You may have noticed your child struggling to see clearly at a distance, making it harder to concentrate at school and have a fulfilling experience at play. Your child may have myopia.

Myopia is a global concern

The incidence of myopia is expected to increase significantly as lifestyle changes, with children taking part in more near-work activities like using digital devices, studying, reading and spending less time outdoors. Hereditary, behavioural and environmental factors also play a part.


Being able to have your child’s myopia diagnosed early not only corrects their vision now, but can help slow the progression of myopia and preserve their vision and eye health for the future.

How does MiYOSMART work?

Cutting edge research conducted by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University showed that myopia progression can be managed by providing clear vision and constant myopic defocus simultaneously.

Care goes beyond the lens

Spend time outdoors.
Research showed that spending time outdoors may reduce risk of myopia and its progression.


Seek regular eye care.
Make sure that your child has regular eye examinations to ensure that myopia or other vision problems are detected and treated early, reducing the worsening of vision, myopia progression and potential complications of high myopia.


Take regular breaks.
Reduce your child’s eye strain by reminding him or her to take breaks from intensive screen time or near-work.
