Myopia Lens Wins Invention Award

The Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments (DIMS) Spectacle Lens for Myopia Control, developed at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), has been awarded the Grand Prize at the 46th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva.

The DIMS spectacle lens with multiple “micro-lens segments” projects myopic defocus and provides clear vision for the wearer simultaneously. According to PolyU, it can slow down myopia progression in children by 60 per cent, and 20 per cent of the test subjects experienced no increase in myopia.
