Understanding Myopia and the Benefits of Essilor Stellest for Children

The Growing Concern of Myopia in Children

In recent years, the prevalence of myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, has been on the rise, particularly among children. Singapore, often referred to as the myopia capital of the world, has witnessed a significant increase in myopia cases among its young population, with a staggering 65 percent of Singaporean children being myopic by Primary 6. This alarming trend can be attributed to a combination of genetic factors and modern lifestyle changes, such as reduced outdoor activities and increased screen time.

At EMME Visioncare, we recognize the critical importance of addressing myopia in children, and we are proud to introduce Essilor Stellest, a groundbreaking solution for myopia control. In this article, we will explore the impact of myopia on children's vision and the remarkable benefits of Essilor Stellest in managing myopia progression.

The Impact of Myopia on Children

Myopia and Its Influence on Vision and Learning

Vision plays a pivotal role in a child's development, with more than 80 percent of childhood learning occurring through visual experiences. Activities like reading, writing, and exploring the world heavily rely on clear and sharp vision. Unfortunately, myopia can significantly impact a child's vision and overall quality of life.

As children increasingly engage in close-up activities such as digital device usage and indoor tasks, the onset of myopia occurs at younger ages, leading to more advanced and severe myopia. Studies have shown that high myopia can result in irreversible vision problems and an increased risk of eye complications later in life.


The Role of Essilor Stellest in Myopia Control

Understanding Essilor Stellest Lens Technology

Essilor Stellest represents Essilor's most advanced solution for combating myopia in children, backed by clinical efficacy. This innovative lens technology is designed to slow down the progression of myopia, offering hope to parents and children alike.

Corrects Myopia and Provides Clear Vision: Essilor Stellest lenses correct myopia in the same way as standard single vision lenses. The single vision zone focuses light precisely on the retina, ensuring excellent visual sharpness and comfort for children.

Controls Myopia Progression with H.A.L.T. Technology: The heart of Essilor Stellest lies in its Highly Aspherical Lenslet Target (H.A.L.T.) technology. This technology consists of 1021 invisible lenslets arranged in a unique constellation, creating a signal volume in front of the child's retina. This signal acts as a brake on the elongation of the eye, effectively slowing down myopia progression. Clinical studies have shown that when worn for at least 12 hours a day, Essilor Stellest lenses can reduce myopia progression by an average of 67 percent compared to standard lenses.

When Should You Consider Essilor Stellest Lenses for Your Child?

Given the rapid progression of myopia in childhood, it is essential to address the issue as early as possible. Waiting to see if the prescription worsens can lead to more severe myopia and increased risks. For example, a 7-year-old child with -1.00D myopia could worsen to -6.00D by the age of 16. Therefore, early intervention with Essilor Stellest lenses is crucial to slowing myopia progression and reducing the long-term impact.

Essilor Stellest for a Brighter Future

Myopia in children is a concern that affects not only their current well-being but also their future vision health. Essilor Stellest lenses offer a powerful solution to combat myopia and ensure that your child's vision remains clear and healthy.
