Did you know that children under 10 years old have the MOST rapid rate of myopia progression?
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, can increase by 0.5D (diopter) annually. A new study suggests that home confinement during the COVID-19 pandemic was associated with a substantial myopic shift for younger school-aged children (6-8 years) according to the 2020 school-based photoscreenings*.

Myopia progression may be slowed with our specialized Jena Refocus Lenses.
With the lastest technology, Jena ReFocus provides a full vision correction and has a ring shaped treatment zone to slow down the myopia progression. The combination of the focus zone and treatment zone provides a clear vision and manages the myopia simultaneously.
By controlling controlling the eye axis elongation caused by peripheral myopia defocusing, Jena ReFocus slows down myopia progression!
Ring Band: 1mm
Material: Polycarbonate, high impact resistance
Visibility Region: 10mm/14mm
DDM is based on peripheral defocus theory, manage the myopic progression by slowing the longitudinal grow of the eye ball.
In the center of the lens, the image on the periphery is clearly formed just on the retina;Surrounding the center zone, there are over four hundreds of aspherical multiple defocus segments in schematic array.
Children prefer Jena MC over other brands because:
Every child should have a chance to slow the progression of myopia!
Myopia control lenses should be accessible to all families. We made Jena MC affordable so you can make sure your child can see a clearer future without breaking the bank.
Nearsightedness (myopia) is a common vision condition in which you can see objects near to you clearly, but objects farther away are blurry. It occurs when the shape of your eye causes light rays to bend (refract) incorrectly, focusing images in front of your retina instead of on your retina.
High amounts of myopia are associated with an increased risk of sight-threatening problems, such as retinal detachment, choroidal degeneration, cataracts, and glaucoma. Slowing the progression of myopia could potentially benefit millions of children.
