According to the six-year follow-up clinical study published in 2022 on MiYOSMART, the myopia control spectacle lens co-developed by HOYA Vision Care and PolyU, it has shown that the patented Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments (DIMS) technology is a simple, safe, effective and non-invasive way to slow the progression of short-sightedness in children.


HOYA Vision Care announced to provide HK$3.8 million of in-kind support to the School of Optometry at PolyU to fund a new two-year research project entitled “Effectiveness of the Defocus Incorporated Spectacle Lenses on Fast Progressing Myope: A Randomised Control Trial”, with an aim of enhancing the myopia management solution and helping children with rapid myopia progression.


In the new clinical study, participating children will be offered about 700 pairs of glasses from HOYA Vision Care and will need to obtain a new pair of glasses approximately every six months during the two-year assessment. This in-kind donation is intended to encourage participation and strengthen the validity of the study, while also helping more children in need.
