DON’T JUST CORRECT MYOPIA, CHOOSE TO CONTROL IT

Did you know that myopia happens when children's eyes grow more than they should? When this process doesn’t stop, we call it myopia progression.

Today most myopic children are wearing standard ophthalmic lenses. These lenses correct myopia and allow children to see clearly. However, their myopia is still worsening. This means that as children grow, their myopia may progress, requiring stronger prescriptions. The more the correction grows the more they are dependent on their glasses.
This also means the risk of becoming highly myopic and developing complications increases.

High myopia is a major concern nowadays, affecting children's daily lives as well as their development.

Myopia can impact a child’s development

Playing, working, reading, discovering the world .... Did you know that more than 80%(4) of children's learning occurs through vision? Myopia can seriously impact your child's eyesight and life.
More children are getting myopia at a younger age – partly due to a rise in sedentary indoor lifestyles and an increasing amount of time spent in near activities. The younger a child develops myopia, the further it evolves and the higher it becomes.
Children developing short-sightedness at a younger age may have an increased risk of developing high myopia and the risk of developing visual impairments in adulthood.

What is myopia?

Myopia, also known as short-sightedness or nearsightedness, is an eye condition affecting how a person’s clarity of vision for distant objects. A person with myopia might be able to see objects close up clearly, but will have difficulty seeing objects in the distance such as a TV screen or whiteboard.

➔  How does myopia impact your child’s vision

Do you have difficulties seeing distant objects? A standard eye test will be able to identify if you have myopia and your optician will be able to recommend the best visual solution for your individual needs.

Stellest Lens Efficacy In Myopia Control

MYOPIA CORRECTION WITH CLEAR VISION

The Single Vision Zone, carrying the prescription of your child, provides sharp vision by perfectly focusing light on the retina. The lens design ensures a large prescription zone. This guarantees clear vision and comfort.

MYOPIA CONTROL WITH A SIGNAL AGAINST EYE ELONGATION

This lens is made of a cutting-edge constellation of 1021 invisible lenslets. On top of bringing sharp vision like a standard single vision lens, this constellation creates a signal in the child's eye acting as a shield against eye elongation.

Thanks to the H.A.L.T(5) technology, Essilor® Stellest™ lenses slow down myopia progression by 67% on average, compared to single vision lenses, when worn 12 hours a day.(1)

Clinically proven

A STATE-OF-THE-ART TWO YEAR CLINICAL TRIAL DEMONSTRATED STRONG EVIDENCE ON STELLEST™ LENSES EFFICACY
graph showing comparison between Stellest lens and Single vision lens

Essilor® Stellest™ lenses slow down myopia progression by 67% on average, compared to single vision lenses, when worn 12 hours a day(1).

In its clinical trial, Essilor showed that after the first year, the eye growth of 9 out of 10 children wearing Stellest™ lenses was similar or slower than non-myopic children. Moreover, 2 out of 3 children who wore Stellest™ lenses have had a stable need in vision correction after the first year(3).

Stellest™ lenses correct myopia and slow it down. A double-action on a daily basis. A long-term benefit.

I think my child may suffer from short-sightedness what should I do?

Short-sightedness is a very common eye condition and can be caused by genetics, environment and lifestyle. If a child’s parents also have myopia, their child is seven times more likely to develop myopia(6). Myopia usually can appear as young as 6 years old. If you notice your child struggles to see the TV screen clearly or their teacher has mentioned that they have issues seeing a whiteboard in class it could be an indication that they suffer from short-sightedness.

➔   How to recognise if your child is short-sighted

A standard eye test will be able to determine if your child has myopia and your optician will be able to provide the best solution for their needs. Get your child’s eyes tested regularly, every 2 years or more often if your optician recommends it. If you or your child notices a change in their vision just book an eye test with your local optician who will be able to check for any changes.
