A custom soft lens supplied specifically for myopia management.
BYO Premium MC is a custom soft lens specially supplied for myopia management. This lens may have an inhibiting effect on myopia development.1 BYO Premium MC is calculated exactly to size with a unique calculation tool and is therefore very suitable for use with higher strengths and cylinder defects.
Features of BYO Premium MC:
- Specially designed for myopia management
- Particularly suitable for higher strengths and cylinder defects
This lens is specially designed for young people with an indication of progressive myopia. Nearsightedness in itself does not have to be dangerous. However, nearsightedness can be especially pronounced in young people. The most significant increase usually occurs between the ages of 6 and 17.2 High myopia frequently leads to serious eye problems such as cataracts, glaucoma and retinal detachment.3 BYO Premium MC lenses are specially designed for myopia management and may have an inhibiting effect on myopia development, with the goal of preventing high myopia - and its associated vision problems - later in life.1 This is called myopia management. Myopia management is customized. A Myopia Management Expert can properly advise you on which treatment is best. The advantage of BYO Premium MC lenses is that they are very comfortable - and very suitable for higher strengths and cylinder defects.
If you are nearsighted you see well at close range and see blurry far away. This blurred vision is because your eye grows in (axis) length so much that the image you are looking at is no longer depicted on the retina but in front of it. Your eye is too long, so to speak. If the eye grows even longer (high myopia), the risk of unpleasant eye diseases such as retinal detachment increases dramatically. This growth is especially rapid among young people.3 The BYO Premium MC contact lens has created a unique profile to inhibit this growth as much as possible while simultaneously ensuring sharp vision. Even at higher strengths and with cylinder defects.
For maximum effectiveness of the therapy, a minimum wear time of 6+ days per week and 10+ hours per day is important. The lens should be replaced every three months.
Wearing contact lenses carries a potential risk of infection. Therefore, you should always follow the advice of the specialist and handle lenses correctly. For example, never clean lenses with water or put them in if your eyes are irritated. See the manual for all information on how to properly clean, store and use lenses. The manual can be obtained from your eye care specialist. The specialist works according to a protocol and makes sure you are properly informed and your eyes are checked regularly. To confirm that both parties will follow the safety instructions, the specialist will ask you to sign a lens agreement.
Before using your soft lenses, always read the package insert that is provided by your contact lens specialist.
To properly clean, disinfect, store and insert your BYO Premium MC lenses, we recommend Ever Clean Plus. The Ever Clean system is suitable for all lens types and is free of preservatives. It consists of a disinfectant based on 3% hydrogen peroxide combined with an innovative dual-focus effervescent tablet that provides thorough lens cleaning, disinfection, neutralization and moistening in just 2 hours. Unlike the standard Ever Clean liquid, povidone and lipase have been added to Ever Clean Plus. Povidone is an effective and long-acting humectant that contributes to the stability of the tear film. The enzyme lipase is effective against lipids that adhere both centrally and at the edges of the lens surface, contributing to thorough lipid cleaning.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which contact lens is best for my eyes?It depends entirely on you and your eyes. During an eye exam an eye care specialist assesses your eyes and looks at the strength and shape of your eye, among other things. You personal situation is also evaluated: When do you want to use them? How often? In what work environment? Based on all the measurements, you can choose the best lenses together with the specialist. Visit your nearest optician for an eye exam or consultation.
How do I clean my lenses?It is important to clean your contact lenses daily. The moment you remove your lenses, it is important to clean, rinse and disinfect them with the recommended lens solution as prescribed or advised by your contact lens specialist. Contact lens cases should also be emptied, cleaned and rinsed daily, as they can be a source of bacterial growth. Importantly, lenses, lens cases and other lens-related products should not come into contact with (tap) water because of the increased risk of microbial keratitis.
What should I look for in lenses for my child?Children can wear lenses as young as 8 years old on average. (1) Before a child can start wearing lenses, the eye care specialist explains what it means to wear the lenses and the responsibilities involved for the child, such as in the area of hygiene.
