“MyoDISC” is a new breakthrough spectacle lens product which is incorporated with DISC Technology

“MyoDISC” is designed by Prof Chi Ho To (the School Head of School of Optometry), and is manufactured by the team of Prof Benny Cheung (the Head of State Key Laboratory of Ultra-precision Machining Technology) in The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

“MyoDISC” is the newest myopia management ophthalmic lenses products of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

“MyoDISC” is made based on 2 patents – DISC Technology and Nanostructured Technology

“MyoDISC” will be launched in the authorized fitting centers in 2022

The Advantages of “MyoDISC” are:

  • High Quality in myopia control (DISC Technology)
  • Ultra-precision in manufacturing (Nanostructured Technology)
  • Good and Stable Vision

What is the mechanism of “MyoDISC” myopia control?
The special designed multi defocusing rings on the lens will project an image in front of the retina which will retard the elongation of eyeball, and reduce the progression of myopia.

Is “MyoDISC” safe?
“MyoDISC” is very safe. It has UV protection and using polycarbonate material which has very high impact resistance and hard to break

What are the difference between “MyoDISC” and other myopia control spectacle lens?
“MyoDISC” is only myopia control product designed and manufactured by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The lens is incorporated with myopia control DISC Technology and manufactured by UMT with new breakthrough patented (2021) nanostructured technology. This can make the defocusin.
