Combating Myopia with Violet Light Technology
Myopia is a growing pandemic with highest rates in Asia. Current solutions are expensive, time consuming, increase risk of infection or have potential for side effects (Ortho-K, soft Multifocal contact lenses, Atropine).
Myopia wearable is a pair of compact optoelectronic components that can be semipermanently attached to a child’s glasses of choice to emit violet light that has been shown to slow myopia progression. The devices will provide 3 hours of violet light exposure each day at an intensity approximately equivalent to normal average outdoor exposure to prevent or slow myopia progression.
- 3 hours of VL exposure equivalent to outdoor exposure
- Attachable to any pair of standard children’s glasses
- Minimizes increase risk of infection or systemic side effects associated with other therapies
