It is that time of year again, with freshly ironed uniforms and extra shiny shoes, children all over the country returned to school. But have parents remembered to check their children’s spectacles are up to date?

We know that myopia is becoming increasingly common, and at a concerning rate, but do your patients? By 2050, half the population of the world, five billion people, will be myopic and nearly a billion people will be highly myopic.2 Essilor® Stellest® lenses have been designed with two complementary features, which when combined offer the best solution to slow down myopia progression in children, while providing correction. But how does it work?

It corrects by providing sharp vision through a single vision zone, which brings a good visual acuity and comfort for the wearer. Benefiting from the Highly Aspherical Lenslet Target (HALT3) Technology, Stellest lenses control myopia progression.

An innovative technology, developed by Essilor by collecting 1021 lenslets spread on 11 rings, is designed to create for the first time a volume of signal that slows down the elongation of the eye. Clinical trials demonstrated that after the first year, the eye growth of nine out of 10 children wearing Stellest lenses was similar or slower than non-myopic children.4

Stellest lenses are recommended for all myopic children: either starting to get myopia or already myopic. Apart from the innovative features offered by Stellest lenses, they are also aesthetic, safe, and simple. 90% of children fully adapt within three days5 and 100% within one week.

We understand that having spectacles for kids can be difficult at times, whether due to changing prescriptions or the risk of losing them. Therefore, Essilor Stellest lenses come with a 12-month prescription guarantee. If a child’s prescription changes, parents can claim a new pair free of charge.6 Moreover, they are also covered against loss and breakage. If a child loses or breaks them, a replacement pair can be claimed.6

Essilor are also piloting an exciting collaboration between Essilor Stellest lenses and Ray-Ban Kids, to offer a complete pair to young patients. A selected number of practices lead the way in this new campaign, supported by new in-store assets and training material.
