Myopia Management for Children


What are Essilor Stellest Lenses?
Essilor® Stellest™ lens is one of the newest generation of myopia controlling spectacle lenses, appearing to have efficacy to slow myopia progression in children. After an eye exam performed by an Eye Care Practitioner, Stellest™ lenses should be recommended to all myopic children:

  • Starting to get myopia
  • Already myopic
  • Stellest™ lenses can be prescribed for myopic children up to -10D.

What is H.A.L.T.?
The Stellest spectacle lens is the culmination of more than 30 years of academic studies, product design, rigorous research efforts and collaboration between the top research institutes, myopia experts and Essilor’s research development teams.

The Stellest lens provides myopia correction and sharp vision through a single vision clear zone in the centre of the lens. It provides myopia control through the H.A.L.T. technology which consists of a constellation of aspherical lenslets spread on 11 rings. The effect of this design is the slowing of the elongation of the eye in myopic children. The power of each ring has been ingeniously determined to ensure light is focussed in front of the retina following the shape of the eye to achieve consistent myopia slowdown.

How effective are Essilor Stellest lenses?
Essilor Stellest lenses slow down myopia progression by 67% on average, compared to single vision lenses, when worn 12 hours a day.

In its clinical trial, Essilor showed that after the first year, the eye growth of 9 out of 10 children wearing Essilor Stellest lenses was similar or slower than non-myopic children. Moreover, 2 out of 3 children who wore Essilor Stellest lenses have had a stable need in vision correction after the first year.
