Correct your child's vision with Stellest lenses for £25 a month

At Holland & James we believe that looking after the vision of your children from a young age helps with their development and gives them a brighter future. We are specialists in children's eye care, committing the time needed to assess your child’s vision fully and recommend the best solutions possible if they need corrective eyewear. One of the most common childhood vision problems is called myopia, also known as short-sightedness. Myopia occurs when children's eyes grow more than they should. When this process doesn’t stop, we call it myopia progression.

Today most myopic children wear glasses with standard ophthalmic lenses. These lenses correct myopia and allow children to see clearly. However, their myopia might still be worsening. This means that as children grow, their myopia may progress, requiring stronger prescriptions. The more the correction grows the more they are dependent on their glasses.This also means the risk of becoming highly myopic and developing complications increases. High myopia is a major concern nowadays, with almost 1 billion people worldwide expected to be affected by it by 2050. This is important because high myopia can increase the risks of vision impairment later in life.

But did you know help is at hand? Stellest™ lenses are Essilor’s best solution to fight children's myopia and are clinically proven to slow down myopia progression by 67% on average. If your child needs an eye examination or already wears standard spectacles for myopia, contact us today to book an appointment. We will carry out a thorough eye examination and if your child is myopic, we can start them on the Stellest™ journey, giving them the vision they need both now and for the future.
