DIMS (Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments) Myopia Control spectacle lenses, such as the MiYoSmart, are specialized spectacle lenses designed to slow down the progression of nearsightedness (myopia) in children and teenagers.
These lenses work by incorporating multiple segments with different refractive powers into the lens design. This unique design creates a defocus effect that reduces the stimulus for the eye to become more nearsighted over time.
In other words, by redirecting the light entering the eye in a specific way, the lenses can help promote more normal eye development and potentially slow down the rate of myopia progression.
While DIMS lenses are not a cure for myopia, they are a valuable tool for parents looking to help manage their child's nearsightedness. As always, it's important to consult with an eye care professional to determine if these lenses are right for your child and to ensure proper monitoring of their eye health over time.
