Essilor® Stellest® lens
The Essilor® Stellest® lens with H.A.L.T.* Technology can be considered as a first-line solution for myopia control, with a two-year prospective, controlled, randomized, double-masked trial demonstrating robust efficacy and acceptance in children.1,2 Three year clinical study data has also been published.3 It is effective in simultaneously providing clear distance vision and a myopia control effect. The myopia control effect has been proven even more effective when the lenses are worn every day for at least 12 hours per day. It can be considered as one of the best available myopia control spectacle lens designs, being superior to progressive addition and bifocal lenses.

Myopilux Max bifocal spectacle lenses have good utility as a treatment option which provides both refractive correction of myopia and myopia control efficacy. They are designed to cause minimal disturbance to the binocular vision system by incorporating prism within the addition zone. One randomized controlled trial of three years' duration showed a moderate myopia control effect for this lens design. Where available, new myopia controlling spectacle lenses such as the Essilor® Stellest® will likely offer better myopia control efficacy than Myopilux Max design.
