The innovative spectacle lens enabling a reduction of myopia progression by an average of 30% in Asian children between 6 and 12 years with a history of parental myopia.*
MyoVision™ is a ZEISS single vision lens design with the innovative "Peripheral Vision Management" technology. It has been invented and designed in collaboration 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 a reduction in the 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.
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 a lengthening (elongation) of the eyeball.
On the left is a comparative illustration for a normal and a myopic eye.
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 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.
MyoVision™ corrects for central vision, but also moves the peripheral image onto, or in front of the retina. Initial research indicates that it has the effect of sending a signal to the eye to reduce profession of eye elongation.

* Clinical trials 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.
