The MiYOSMART spectacle lenses have been found to significantly reduce the progression of myopia and axial elongation in children in the UK, as compared to data from untreated myopes. The study looked at the change in spherical equivalent refraction (SER) and axial length (AL) over a period of 12 months in 87 children between the ages of 5 to 15 years who were prescribed the MiYOSMART lenses. The results showed that the average change in SER and AL over 12 months was -0.36D and 0.18mm respectively, which was significantly less than the change reported in untreated myopes. The efficacy of the lenses was found to be better in children over 10 years of age. These findings suggest that MiYOSMART spectacle lenses can be an effective means of controlling myopia in children.
