A large portion of what children learn and experience occurs through their eyes.1 If a young child's visual system does not perform optimally, this can negatively affect their development.2 It is essential that myopic children in particular get the best optical support.
Indeed, the prevalence of myopia progression is becoming a serious problem, especially in Asia: almost 90% of young people develop myopia before the age of 20.3 Moreover, this is a global trend. In 2050, nearly 50% of the world’s population may be myopic.4
To address this problem ZEISS has developed the most comprehensive myopia management spectacle lens portfolio, specially designed for children aged 6 to 12.
The ZEISS portfolio is based on the two leading scientific approaches using ophthalmic lenses targeted at managing the progression of myopia. Two new designs provide advanced properties enabled by more recent research and state-of-the-art freeform technologies.
It has been proven that specific myopia management spectacle lenses result in reduced myopia progression when compared to standard single vision lenses used to correct myopic refractive errors.5-6
