Stellest Lenses to Slow Myopia ArriveEssilor’s Stellest spectacle lens has been launched in Australia/New Zealand to correct vision and slow myopia progression in children. Clinical trial results show that after two years, Essilor Stellest lenses slow myopia progression by 67% on average, compared to single vision lenses, when worn 12 hours a day.1While current results are based on children from eight to 13 years, Essilor Stellest lenses can be recommended to children as young as six and up to 16-years-old, as determined by the optometrist. Stellest lenses use H.A .L.T.2technology; a constellation of 1,021 lenslets spread on 11 rings creates a volume of signal that slows down the elongation of the eye. Based on scientific publications, EssilorLuxottica research and development experts concluded that a volume of signal has a stronger effect on slowing of myopia progression than a surface signal. The aspherical lenslet design and their arrangement create this targeted effect of volume of non-focussed light in front of the retina, following its shape. In children, whose eyes are still developing, this volume of signal keeps the eye elongation process in check. Essilor Stellest lenses are designed for children, suitable for a variety of paediatric frames. and complemented by advanced equipment from Essilor Instruments. References available at
