Slow down myopia progression
Myopia has become a global issue in visual health. Particularly among young people, its prevalence has significantly increased. By 2050, half of the world's population will be myopic. To address this challenge, Essilor offers the Stellest® lens, an innovative solution to slow down the progression of myopia.
Stellest® lenses use advanced technology that reduces peripheral eye stimulation while preserving clear central vision. Consisting of 1021 invisible microlenses, they slightly deviate incoming light rays, thereby limiting excessive stimulation of the eye's axial growth, a primary factor in progressive myopia.
However, it is essential to understand that this technology is not a miracle solution to reverse existing myopia. Stellest® lenses should be combined with other preventive measures, such as limiting screen exposure, encouraging outdoor activities, and taking regular breaks during tasks that require visual concentration.
For optimal care, it is crucial to regularly consult an ophthalmologist from a young age. Early screenings allow for the diagnosis of myopia and the implementation of appropriate follow-up measures.
Given the increasing prevalence of myopia among young people, Essilor's Stellest® lenses offer an innovative solution to slow down its progression. In combination with other preventive measures and regular ophthalmologist check-ups, they contribute to preserving the visual health of the younger generations.
