Stellest has been clinically proven to slow down myopia progression up to 67%. Also, it slows down eye elongation up to 60%. (The more the eye elongates, the higher the myopia).
Impacts of Myopia Progression
Myopia is a growing health problem among our children as more children are developing myopia at a younger age. This can be due to genes, lesser time outdoors and more time in front of screens.
Studies have shown that 80% of the learning occurs through vision and 1 in 3 children can’t see the board clearly. Hence, myopia progression can affect your child’s learning and eye health.
As myopia increase, the risk of such complications also significantly increase.
Children with low myope of -1.00D to -3.00 have 2X more risk of developing vision-threatening complications later in life. A -8.00D myope has a higher risk of developing vision impairment than a -4.00D
Research have shown that the younger a child develops myopia, the faster it will worsen to high myopia. A 7 years old child with -1.00D myopia can have their myopia progressed to -6.00 by the time they reach 16.
The table below shows the myopia at 16 years old when the child who develop myopia at 7 years old vs at 11 years old.
It shows that the earlier the child develop myopia, the higher the myopia will become in future.
Hence, it is important to start myopia control early when your child is diagnose with myopia.
Unlike ordinary lenses which only correct myopia, Stellest lenses are clinically proven to slow down myopia progression by 67%.
Stellest is able to correct and control myopia while standard lenses is only able to correct myopia.
