PolyU and the Hong Kong Innovation Foundation (HKIF) recently joined hands to launch the two-year PolyU-HKIF Children Eye Care Project. The objective is to help children from underprivileged families to control myopia progression at an optimal age and reduce vision problems attributed to myopia. 


Under the project, 200 children aged 6-12 with 300 degrees or above of short-sightedness will be prescribed with the Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments (DIMS) Spectacle Lens jointly developed by PolyU and Hoya Corporation. The lens has proven effective in slowing myopia progression in children. Regular follow-up check-ups will also be provided to the participating children. Details>>
