SLOW DOWN THEIR MYOPIA PROGRESSION
We all want the best for our children. Unfortunately, we can’t always identify everything, control everything, know everything. Myopia can strongly and permanently affect our children’s vision and life.
Today, with Essilor Stellest lenses, it’s possible to control their myopia progression. This is a major and a crucial choice for our children, because the earlier you control their myopia progression, the less their vision will be impacted.
Studies showed that high myopia may lead to severe vision impairment that can no longer be corrected through standard lenses. It can even increase the risk of ocular complications later in life.
There is 10x more risk of developing vision impairment for a -6.00 diopter myope than for a -4.00 myope.
Now, thanks to Essilor Stellest spectacle lenses, it is possible to control the progression of myopia. The sooner your child's myopia progression is controlled, the less impact it will have in the long term.
Aristone Optical will be able to provide you with more information about Stellest lenses and if they’re suitable for your child. With Stellest glasses, watch your children grow, not their myopia.
FIRSTLY. WHAT IS MYOPIA?
Myopia, also known as short-sightedness, is an eye condition affecting how a person’s clarity for distant objects. A person with myopia can usually see objects close up clearly, but will have difficulty seeing objects in the distance such as a TV screen, whiteboard or friends faces.
MYOPIA CAN IMPACT A CHILD'S DEVELOPMENT
Playing, working, reading, discovering the world .... Did you know that more than 80% 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.
Essilor Stellest lenses slow down myopia progression by 67% on average, compared to single vision lenses, when worn on average 12 hours a day.
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.
