Hoya and Haag-Streit form preferred partnership to address myopia

The partnership will provide optometrists with Lenstar Myopia by Hoya


Haag-Streit UK and Hoya Lens UK have formed a preferred partnership to provide a “comprehensive” suite of tools to address myopia in children.

The preferred partnership between the two companies will provide eye care professionals (ECPs) with the Lenstar Myopia by Hoya for the diagnosis and treatment of myopia.

The Lenstar Mopia by Hoya is based on the technology of the Lenstar 900 optical biometer and the EyeSuite myopia management software platform, which provides information and education to patients and their families about myopia.

The companies suggested that using this technology alongside Hoya’s Miyosmart lens, “creates a strong one-two approach to diagnose and manage myopia.”

Andy Sanders, professional services director, Hoya Lens UK, explained: “This agreement creates preferred partner status between the two companies to provide diagnostics and treatment for myopia to as many ECPs as possible in the UK and Ireland, as myopia continues to rise.”

Thomas Bernhard, CEO of the Haag-Streit Group, suggested the partnership will provide eye care professionals with “an end-to-end and comprehensive package that optimally equips them to combat myopia.”

“We are convinced that with this seamless intersection of the Lenstar Myopia by Hoya and the Miyosmart spectacle lens treatment protocol, we can together make a valuable contribution to combating the worldwide progression of myopia,” he added.
