Children’s Eyewear

In addition to keeping your children’s eyes healthy, we’re passionate about matching them with eyewear that suits their personality, life and style. Wearing spectacles can seem a daunting prospect to youngsters, so our friendly dispensing team is on hand to help your child through the process of choosing the perfect pair. Our favourite frames from Eyespace Eyewear and International Eyewear offer maximum flexibility, and come in a stylish array of colours and shapes.

If your child is hesitant about wearing glasses, it is possible to fit them with contact lenses to help them keep an active life without worrying about breaking or losing their specs. Why not visit the practice to discuss your options?

Myopia Control

A break-through in myopia management

Myopia, or short sightedness, is increasing within the population every year. It is estimated that half of the global population could be short sighted by 2050!

Unfortunately, being short sighted is not only inconvenient, but it can also increase your risks for certain long term eye conditions.

As myopia control specialists we are delighted to offer Miyosmart spectacle lenses and soft contact lenses that are designed to manage myopia.

MiyoSmart is an innovative spectacle lens for myopia control developed by Hoya together with its research collaborator. Based on a 2 year clinical trial, MiyoSmart is proven to curb Myopia progression in children on average by 60% with its award winning D.I.M.S technology.

D.I.M.S technology

MiyoSmart with D.I.M.S. technology is comprised of a central optical zone for correcting refractive error and multiple defocus.

Segments evenly surrounding the central zone (extending to the mid-periphery) of the lens to control myopia progression. This provides clear vision and myopic defocus simultaneously at all viewing distances.

As children are active, there is a need for the lens material to be impact-resistant to offer their eyes the protection they need. MiyoSmart uses polycarbonate 1.59 which is a highly impact resistant material that has passed the high velocity impact drop ball test.
