SLOWS THE PROGRESSION OF MYOPIA
Myopia progression control is a procedure put into place by your eyecare professional in order to correct your child’s vision, while at the same time slowing the progression of their myopia, thereby preventing high myopia, and reducing their risk of developing serious ocular impairment in the future.
At your child’s annual visit with their eye care professional, don’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have about your child’s vision. Your eye care professional will advise you on the programs and products available to properly correct your child’s vision. You can also consult the Kids’ Vision Problems page on our website to learn more about children’s vision needs.
Stellest lenses are recommended by eyecare professionals and they will be able to determine when the best time is for your child to start wearing them. Don’t hesitate to discuss this at your next appointment.
