SLOWS THE PROGRESSION OF MYOPIA

YOUR CHILD IS UNIQUE, OUR TECHNOLOGY TO

Play, learn, read, discover, see the world… Did you know that more than 80%* of your child’s learning is done through their vision? Myopia can have a major impact on your child's vision and life, and it can be permanent. More and more children are becoming myopic at a very young age, which increases their risk of developing high myopia and the risk of developing visual impairments as adults. Now, thanks to Essilor® Stellest™ lenses, it is possible to control the progression of myopia. The earlier your child's myopia progression is controlled, the less impact it will have on their eyesight in the long run. With Stellest lenses, see your children grow, not their myopia.

THE BENEFITS OF STELLEST LENSES

MYOPIA CAN DEVELOP QUICKLY IN A CHILD

Early management can help slow the progression of myopia and reduce the risk of complications in adulthood.

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

THE THREE STEPS FOR GETTING YOUR CHILD FITTED WITH STELLEST LENSES

THE THREE STEPS FOR GETTING YOUR CHILD FITTED WITH STELLEST LENSES

  1. VISIT THE OPTOMETRIST
    After an eye exam by an optometrist, Stellest lenses will be recommended for children:
    • who starting to get myopia
    • who are already myopic
    • who are at risk of developing severe myopia
    Your child’s prescription needs to mention “slow down myopia” or “myopia management”
  2. VISIT AN EYE CARE PROFESSIONAL
    • Order Stellest lenses from the optician based on the optometrist's prescription.
    • Delivery of the new Stellest glasses and verification that they fit your child properly.
  3. FOLLOW-UP VISITS TO THE OPTOMETRIST
    Depending on the optometrist's recommendation, follow-up appointments can be scheduled every six months to evaluate the progression of myopia.

Myopia journey, how can I support my child?

We recommend several appointments and visits with eye care professionals in order to monitor your child's myopia journey. When your child receives their Stellest lenses, they will be given their Stellest Passport. This will allow you to track the progress of your child's myopia, prepare for follow-up visits, and find information and advice about your child's myopia.

OUR ADVICE TO PARENTS

  • Make sure your child wears their Stellest lenses as often as possible. The more often your child wears their Stellest lenses, the greater effect they will have in slowing down myopia. Our recommendation is to wear the lenses at least 12 hours a day every day.
  • To care for their eyesight on a daily basis, we recommend that children spend two hours a day outdoors and take regular breaks when using their near vision for extended periods of time (looking up every 20 minutes or so).
  • Don't hesitate to go back to your optician to make sure that the frame size is still appropriate as your child grows.
