Myopia Control for Children
Slow down Myopia Progression

SWISSCOAT offers the Myopia control and monitoring lenses that can slow down the rate of progression for your child. It is specially design for the active 8 to 16 years old children.

SWISSCOAT Myopia Control lens need to be prescribed by professional optometrists and to have always at least every 6 months check up and monitor by your optometrists in order to achieve the best result in the control of the shortsightedness. SWISSCOAT Myopia control and Monitoring lenses :

MYOLock 1088

A myopic child will easily become highly myopic. Eye disease will come more easily. To safeguard eyesight and eye health, SWISSCOAT strives to create a new solution of myopia control.


The latest solution to control myopia progression.


According to Rx of adolescents, full distant correction through the central area and _eld of vision.


5 vision zones including center, far-vision, near-vision, nasal and temporal. Through 1088 micro-lenses fixed in 13 circles, we create a myopic defocus condition for incident light ray peripheral to macula. This professional design can retard excessive abnormal growth of the eye and keep correct axial length of the eye. This design also keeps good control for myopia progression.


Impact resistant materials give children better protection. MYOLock1088 is fabricated on PC materials. It is extremely tough, light and not easy to become yellowish within 3-5 years.


The eyeball is only an approximate sphere rather than a perfect sphere, the macular location of the retina belongs to the imaging area, the distance from the periphery of the retina to the anterior apex of the cornea varies gradually. Due to the spherical shape of the eye ball, when the human eye see objects, the objects on the visual axis focus precisely on the macula, but the objects at peripheral space focus at a point behind the retina, which is called hyperopic defocus.


MYOLock1088 combines the special structure of human eye to develop P.M.D.T , which employs the differentiated zoning layout and near-vision zone adjustment to delay the growth of axial length and avoid progression to high myopia.


P.M.D.T effectively helps user adapt to different scenes, either for indoors or outdoors, it adopts different defocus power on different zones on the lens, it is to ensure each individual zone is ideally used for particular distance or task.


Partition Multi-Points Defocusing Technology first creates partitioned defocusing of left and right lenses, so the defocusing area can generate different defocusing amount in different directions. The asymmetrical design of left and right eyes is ergonomic. Zoning correction according to the retina structure and general visual habit of the wearer to ensure the defocus lens adapt to various scenarios.


The eye ball can turn to any directions from its primary gaze which always coincide with the central clear zone and the desired defocusing power is different at different gaze.Myolock 5 zones design provide a dynamic setting to cope with the actual use of eyes in different scenarios.




Traditional peripheral defocusing lens reduces farsighted hyperopic defocus imaging around the retina by changing the peripheral power of lens to control the growth of eye ball axial length and myopia. While multi-point defocusing lens allow simultaneous multiple defocus and can make the peripheral imaging fall before the retina to form a myopic defocus zone with the micro convex lens array.

1. Based on the principle of retinal imaging, precise calculations are carried out to obtain the defocus area and defocus amount for partition differentiated management. Myolock team divides the defocus area into center zone, far-vision zone, near-vision zone, nasal zone and temporal zone, different zones have different defocusing power, which makes the defocus lens adapt to various scenarios.

2. Gap between each circle is reserved to avoid stray light Interfering.

3. Refracted ray goes through the central 8mm area with no interference to guarantee the clarity of image.



MYOLock1088 lens adopts 5 partition differentiated design to guarantee clear and stable vision of center zone, 1088 micro convex lenses are arranged around the central zone to form other 4 zones as far-vision zone, near-vision zone, nasal zone and temporal zone. By using the converging power of micro-lenses, the rays focus before the retina to achieve a myopic defocusing effect, which helps delay the growth of the axial length to slow the progression of myopia. Partition defocus differentiated design meets the need of using of eyes in different scenes.

Know More About Peripheral Defocus Lenses and know more about how can myopia be controlled

With standard single vison lenses, the central zone works fine and provides clear distant vision, but the lens periphery always projects the image behind the retina, resulting in hyperopic defocus.

From various clinical studies, it is believed that peripheral retinal hyperopic defocus would send signal to elongate the eye ball which may cause myopia progression.

Reference: Smith EL, Hung LF. The role of optical defocus in regulating refractive development in infant monkeys. Vision Res 1999;39:1415–35

SWISSCOAT MYO ProTECH Myopia Monitoring lenses provide different correction curve to minimize the over correction.

In normal circumstance, when we are looking at objects, image would be focused on macular region (central retina), but when the light ray is from periphery, it passes through the lens periphery and projected onto peripheral retina, hyperopic defocus would be resulted.

Peripheral defocus lens (MYO ProTECH in this case), power decreases towards lens periphery from optical centre, which helps compensate for unwanted peripheral hyperopic defocus, and therefore may help retarding myopia progression theoretically.

SWISSCOAT Myopia Monitoring provide different correction curve
to minimize the over correction.

3mm distance zone for normal correction. Minus power decreasing to

Keep the distance power extend to the near vision zone for reading.

Peripheral Defocus

Hyperopic defocus, image focus behind retina

Myopic defocus image focus in the front of retina

When compare with standard single vision lens, peripheral defocus lens is more effective in retarding eye-ball elongation

MYO ProTECH Lens Design Principle

  • Aspherical
  • Clear Vision and stable optical zone in the center part (8-10mm)
  • Correcting defocus from optical center to periphery
  • Far Distance power is extended to reading zone at the lower part of the lens with inset
  • Defocus option available in 0.25 light , 0.50 standard , 0.75 max
  • 0.75 is the strongest peripheral defocus power, maximum defocus could reach 1.75D ( 20mm away from optical zone )

StressFree - the blue light protection proven by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

Hong Kong is a city that is drenched in blue light. With flashy monitors everywhere and the ever increasing usage of electronics such as smartphones, their eyes are susceptible to more blue light than most other cities, and could drastically affect their eye health.

There is a way to stem the tide. With SWISSCOAT’s StressFree coating features effective protection against high energy blue light. In a commissioned research done by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University1, it is proven that SWISSCOAT’s StressFree coating offers the following benefits.

1. Effectively filters high energy blue light

2.Does not hinder color and contrast sensitivity

3.Does not affect night vision
