Essilor will launch a full range of myopia management solutions in early 2022 in Canada, making it the first country in North America to offer this vision care portfolio. The launch includes the introduction of the Essilor Stellest“ lens, which slows down the progression of myopia in children, on a pilot basis starting later this year and then more broadly across the country in early 2022. It also brings a suite of digital instruments and solutions with the Myopia Expert 700 and the Essibox Myopia Care to help eyecare professionals improve their myopia management.

The StellestTM lens has been designed with an exclusive and pioneering technology called “H.A.L.T.”

As the world leader in vision care with a renowned track record in research and development of disruptive vision solutions, Essilor has been taking a leading role to address the myopia issue. From clinical trials in the 1980s to recent strategic partners with leading organizations such as the International Myopia Institute or the Global Myopia Awareness Coalition, Essilor has been committed to developing innovative and effective solutions to help slow down myopia progression in children and contribute to preventing high myopia in the future.

Coming now to Canada, the Essilor StellestTM lens has been designed with an exclusive and pioneering technology called “H.A.L.T.” technology (Highly Aspherical Lenslet Target) by Essilor’s industry-leading research and development teams.

Correct, Control, no compromises. The H.A.L.T. technology (Highly Aspherical Lenslet Target) consists of a constellation of aspherical lenslets spread on 11 rings and was designed to create for the first time, a volume of signal that slows down the elongation of the eye. The optical properties of the lenslets on each ring have been ingeniously determined to guarantee a volume of signal always in front of the retina and following its shape. In addition, Essilor StellestTM lenses are comfortable, and easy to adapt for children: 90% of children are fully adapted within three days and 100% within one week*.

A complete patient journey that includes a suite of instruments and digital solutions

In addition to lenses, the world leader also offers a highly accurate, turnkey resource that enables proactive myopia management by eyecare professionals through its Myopia Expert 700 with its digital Essibox Myopia Care solution.
