ZEISS Single Vision MyoVision™

The innovative spectacle lens indicating a reduction of myopia progression by an average of 30% in Asian children between 6 and 12 with history of parental myopia.*

MyoVision Design

MyoVision™ is a ZEISS single vision lens design with the innovative "Peripheral Vision Management" technology. It is invented and designed in conjunction with Vision CRC and marketed exclusively by ZEISS.

MyoVision™ by ZEISS was developed following research that demonstrates the link between peripheral retinal image blur and myopia progression. MyoVision™ has been designed to provide sharp foveal vision while managing peripheral imaging through a unique and novel lens design.

A 12-month wearer efficacy trial amongst 210 Chinese school children resulted in reducing progression of myopia by an average of 30% in a subgroup of 19 younger children (6 to 12 years old) with at least one myopic parent.*
This is statistically significant.

Benefits

The benefits for the wearer

  • Deliver clear and sharp vision
  • First research indicating an effect of sending a signal to the eye to reduce progression of eye elongation
  • Offer good comfort through thin and light lenses
  • Provides excellent adaptability, cosmetics and wearability

Normal Eye

A normal eye where the image is projected on the retina, both centrally and peripherally

Myopic Eye

A myopic eye where the image is projected in front of the retina (due to eye elongation)

Unique Technology behind MyoVision™

Myopia is where the image of a distant object is focused in front of the retina, resulting in blurred distance vision. This is mostly a result of the lenghtening (elongation) of the eye ball.

At the left side is a comparative illustration for a normal and a myopic eye.

Corrected myopic eye

A corrected myopic eye with a flat-form lens. The image is projected on the retina centrally, BUT behind the retina periperally

Research show an indication that the image quality on the periperal retina drives growth of the eye ball. The elongation of the eye also creates a prolate sharped retina (ellipsoid elongated along the optical axis), which has a detrimental influence on the peripheral focal properties.
Conventional single vision lenses correct for central vision, but may contribute to a deterioration of the peripheral image projection.

Corrected myopic eye with MyoVision

A corrected myopic eye with MyoVision™. The image is projected on the retina centrally, BUT in front of (or on) the retina peripherally

MyoVision™ corrects for central vision, but also moves the peripheral image onto, or in front of the retina. Its first research shows an indication that it has an effect of sending a signal to the eye to reduce profession of eye elongation.

* Clinical trail of 210 Chinese children between the ages of 6 and 16 years old over a period of 12 month. 50 children wearing MyoVision™ lenses and 50 children standard single vision lenses. Result is achieved in a subgroup (19 children out of 50 wearing MyoVision™ lenses) between the ages of 6 to 12 years old and with at least one myopic parent.
