Essilor Stellest Lenses slow down Myopia
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
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.
