MiYOSMART: Myopia Control in Singapore at EMME Visioncare


Addressing the Myopia Epidemic

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a growing concern globally, affecting approximately half of the world's population, with estimates suggesting that by 2050, a staggering 5 billion people could be myopic. The situation is particularly worrisome in Singapore, where factors like increased near-work activities, reduced outdoor time, and the importance of education contribute to a higher likelihood of myopia among children and teenagers.

At EMME Visioncare, a trusted name in optometry, we are committed to combating this myopia epidemic through advanced myopia control solutions. One such groundbreaking solution is MiYOSMART, developed by HOYA in collaboration with The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. With the information below, we explore the efficacy of MiYOSMART for myopia control in Singapore and how it can safeguard the vision health of future generations.


Understanding MiYOSMART

The Science Behind MiYOSMART

MiYOSMART is not just another pair of prescription lenses; it's a game-changer in the world of myopia control. Powered by Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments (D.I.M.S.) Technology, these lenses feature a unique convex surface comprising hundreds of small segments, each providing myopic defocus. This ingenious lens structure achieves a dual purpose: slowing down eyeball growth while maintaining clear vision.

Constant Myopic Defocus

For effective myopia control, it's crucial that the wearer experiences myopic defocus consistently, even during eye movement. MiYOSMART accomplishes this seamlessly, ensuring that your child's vision is protected while myopia progression is curbed.

Who Can Benefit from MiYOSMART?

Identifying Suitable Candidates

MiYOSMART is a beacon of hope for children and teenagers in Singapore who exhibit myopia progression. Our optometrists at EMME Visioncare are well-versed in myopia control and can assess whether MiYOSMART is the right choice for your child. There is no minimum age requirement for MiYOSMART, making it a safe and effective option for active kids.

A Range of Prescriptions

MiYOSMART lenses are versatile, catering to a wide range of prescriptions from 0.00 to -10.00D, and/or up to -4.00DC astigmatism correction, ensuring that most myopic individuals can benefit from this revolutionary solution.


Proven Effectiveness of MiYOSMART

Clinical Validation

Extensive research and clinical trials have established MiYOSMART as a formidable tool against myopia progression. In a two-year study, children wearing MiYOSMART lenses experienced a remarkable 60% reduction in myopia progression compared to those using traditional single vision lenses. This clinical evidence underscores the effectiveness of MiYOSMART in Singapore's battle against childhood myopia.

Long-term Results

What sets MiYOSMART apart is its sustained myopia control effect over time. A six-year follow-up study, the longest ever conducted on a myopia management spectacle lens, revealed that the benefits of MiYOSMART endure. Importantly, children who discontinue wearing MiYOSMART do not experience rebound effects, providing peace of mind to parents.

MiYOSMART vs. Other Myopia Control Methods

MiYOSMART vs. Myopia Control Contact Lenses

MiYOSMART is worn during the day, making it a convenient choice for parents and children alike. In contrast, myopia control contact lenses like MiSight require daily wear, while Ortho-K lenses are worn during sleep. MiYOSMART is easy to adapt to, similar to MiSight, offering a comfortable myopia control solution for children.

Safety and Convenience

MiYOSMART is a safe and non-invasive method for myopia control, making it suitable for active kids. It provides UV protection, is lightweight, thin, and impact-resistant. Unlike contact lenses, MiYOSMART doesn't require special maintenance, offering a hassle-free solution for parents.
