HOYA to Release Results of MiYOSMART Clinical Study at Symposium on Myopia Management

HOYA Vision Care announced they will hold their symposium on Myopia Management on 24 April 2021 where the results of a three-year clinical follow-up study on the MiYOSMART lens will be discussed. The virtual event, focusing on HOYA’s approach to managing the ever-increasing rise of myopia in children, will be held during the European Academy of Optometry and Optics (EAOO) Helsinki 2021.

The key highlight of the symposium will include HOYA Vision Care experts presenting the findings of a three-year clinical study recently published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology featuring the results of its award-winning MiYOSMART spectacle lens use with children. This study, conducted by the Centre for Myopia Research at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and follows- up on a two-year study which previously demonstrated strong evidence of the lenses’ effectiveness in slowing down the progression of myopia in children ages 8-13 on average by 60%.

“The results of the three-year follow-up study on the MiYOSMART lens are very positive with the lens continuing to address the growing problem of myopia in children’’ said Griff Altmann, Chief Technology Officer at HOYA Vision Care. “We are very pleased to have the opportunity to share the latest clinical research data during the EAOO Helsinki 2021 conference.”

The virtual Myopia Symposium event on April 24 will be held from 10-11 a.m. local Helsinki time.
