Myopia (often called short sightedness) is an eye health issue that every parent should be aware of but may not know about.
A person with myopia can see clearly up close – when reading a book or looking at a phone – but words and objects look fuzzy on a blackboard, on television or when driving.
Our Opticians and Optometrists are certified in the dispensing of lenses that help reduce the progression of myopia. We are available to answer your all your questions and develop a myopia treatment program specifically for your child.
Essilor Stellest lenses slow down myopia progression by 67% on average, compared to single vision lenses, when worn 12 hours a day*.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Single Vision Zone, carrying the prescription of the wearer, brings sharp vision by perfectly focusing light on the retina. The lens design ensures a large prescription zone. This guarantees a good visual acuity and comfort for the wearer.
Essilor went a step further to help control myopia by creating a unique technology tailored to the myopic eye: the H.A.L.T.(1) technology (Highly Aspherical Lenslet Target). The constellation of 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. In children, whose eyes are still developing, this volume of signal allows to keep the eye elongation process in check. Light rays crossing the constellation create a volume of non focused light in front of the retina and following its shape. This signal allows to slow down the eye elongation.
Correct vision and treat myopia with MiyoSmart lenses. These lenses are an innovative spectacle lens for myopia control developed by Hoya together with its research collaborator. Based on a two-year clinical trial results, MiyoSmart is proven to curb myopia progression in children in average by 60%3 with its award-winning D.I.M.S. (Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments) technology.
MiyoSmart with D.I.M.S. technology is comprised of a central optical zone for correcting refractive error and multiple defocus segments evenly surrounding the central zone (extending to the mid-periphery) of the lens to control myopia progression. This provides clear vision and myopic defocus simultaneously at all viewing distances.
We know that the anatomical and lifestyle needs of children, as well as their lens fitting parameters, may differ from those of adults. That’s why now is the time for the next generation of MyoVision ® Lenses by ZEISS, specially designed for children.
ZEISS MyoVision design applies the principles of Peripheral Defocus Management: the correction of the peripheral “hyperopic shift” affecting myopic eyes sends a signal to the eye to reduce the progression of eye elongation, which can result in the reduction of myopia progression.
