WHAT IS MYOPIA?
Short-sightedness, or myopia, is common among many age groups. It is when objects near-to are seen more clearly than objects in the distance. It can be corrected using specialists glasses, lenses and contact lenses. You can find out more and be tested for Myopia by visiting F G Brown & Associates in Stowmarket today.
Having to wear spectacles, especially when younger, is not an option that many people would choose. Also, if it is likely that the need for stronger spectacles will be necessary over time, most people would choose to avoid this.
Spectacles and contact lenses will correct this loss of focus in the distance very effectively. However, children through to young adults are likely to see a need for increasingly strong spectacle lenses in time. Research has shown that across the world the incidence of short sight is increasing significantly, mainly across East Asia but significantly in Europe as well. Treatments to slow short-sight progression have been of limited effectiveness until the last few years, but now the use of drops, contact lenses and Stellest spectacle lenses can slow the increase down. At F G Brown, we can advise on all Myopia control options that are available for your child. Get in touch with us to discuss in more detail.
STELLEST MYOPIA CONTROL SPECTACLE LENSES
Myopia cannot jeopardise our children’s development any longer! More children are becoming short sighted at a younger age, partly due to a more sedentary indoor lifestyle and increasing time spent in near activities, such as mobile phones and tablets. The younger a child develops myopia (shortsightedness) the further it evolves and the higher it becomes. After a state of the art 2-year clinical trial it has been demonstrated that Stellest lenses can slow down myopia progression by 67% on average compared to single vision lenses when worn 12 hours a day. Trials also found that the eye growth of 9 out of 10 children wearing Stellest lenses was similar or slower than non-myopic children.
For children their vision is as clear with Stellest lenses as with standard single vision lenses. This is a game changing innovation. Stellest lenses mean that a childs myopia can now be slowed with a spectacle lens rather that drops or contact lenses.
