ZEISS Single Vision MyoVision™

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 Design

    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.

  • Benefits

    The benefits for the wearer

    • Deliver clear and sharply focused vision
    • Initial research indicates an effect of sending a signal to the eye to reduce the progression of eye elongation
    • Offer good comfort through thin and light lenses
    • Provides excellent adaptability, cosmetic advantages and wearability
  • Details
    Normal Eye

    A normal eye where the image is projected onto 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 a lengthening (elongation) of the eyeball.

    On the left 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 onto 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 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 onto 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. 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.
