Myopia Control with Miyosmart Spectacle Lenses and MiSight Contact Lenses

March 4, 2023

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common vision problem that affects millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the eye grows too long, causing light to focus in front of the retina instead of on it, resulting in blurry distance vision. While glasses and contact lenses can correct myopia, they do not address the underlying issue of eye elongation.

Fortunately, recent advancements in myopia control technology, such as Miyosmart spectacle lenses and MiSight contact lenses, offer a solution that can slow down the progression of myopia in children and adolescents. At Wallace Opticians, we are excited to offer these innovative myopia control options to our patients.

What are Miyosmart Spectacle Lenses?

Miyosmart spectacle lenses are a type of progressive lens that incorporates innovative Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments (DIMS) technology. DIMS technology works by using strategically placed lens segments that direct light more accurately to peripheral areas of the retina, slowing down the elongation of the eye that causes myopia.

Miyosmart lenses are designed to be worn by children and adolescents, and they can be fitted to almost any frame style. They offer a comfortable and convenient myopia control option for those who prefer to wear glasses.

What are MiSight Contact Lenses?

MiSight contact lenses are a soft, daily disposable contact lens specifically designed for myopia control. They use ActivControl Technology, which incorporates a dual-focus design that helps to slow down the progression of myopia by reducing the strain on the eye. MiSight lenses are easy to wear and maintain, making them a great option for active children and adolescents who prefer contact lenses over glasses.

Benefits of Myopia Control

Myopia control with Miyosmart spectacle lenses and MiSight contact lenses offers several benefits, including:

  1. Slowing down the progression of myopia: Myopia control options can slow down the rate at which the eye grows, which can help prevent severe myopia and associated eye health risks.
  2. Improved vision: By slowing down the progression of myopia, patients can enjoy improved long-term vision and reduced dependence on corrective eyewear.
  3. Convenience and comfort: Myopia control options are designed to be comfortable and convenient for patients, whether they prefer glasses or contact lenses.
  4. Long-term eye health: Myopia control can help reduce the risk of developing vision-threatening eye conditions such as myopic degeneration and retinal detachment.

At Wallace Opticians, we are committed to providing our patients with the latest advancements in myopia control technology.
