HOYA Wins Prestigious Silmo d’Or Award in Paris
HOYA Vision Care announces that its MiYOSMART lens has won the Silmo d’Or Award in the Vision category at the recent SILMO Paris Optical Fair. The spectacle lens was developed to address and manage myopia in children through years of partnership with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and launched in Hong Kong and the Peoples Republic of China in 2018.
The MiYOSMART lens, an easy to use, non-invasive treatment to control myopia, has been shown to slow the progress on average by 60% based on results from a two-year clinical trial published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology.
“Innovation and collaboration to bring the best solutions to Eye Care Professionals and their patients is at the core of HOYA Vision Care’s mission,” says Alexandre Montague, CEO HOYA Vision Care. “It is an honour to be recognized by our peers receiving the Silmo d’Or Award for our ground-breaking MiYOSMART lens which is successfully managing and controlling myopia in children.”
After launching MiYOSMART in several Asian markets, Canada – as reported by Optik NOW in July 2020 – and Australia, HOYA Vision Care began the roll out of the MiYOSMART lens in Europe in 2020, starting in France.
MiYOSMART has not been approved for use in the treatment of Myopia in all countries, including the U.S., and is not currently available for sale in all countries, including the U.S.
