Essilor® Stellest™ is helping Boon Xin fight myopia

Boon Xin had tried on and worn her new spectacles for the past two months.

We had pop over to Eyecare Studio Optometrist (Fernvale) for her eye care examination.

She needed almost two weeks to get adjusted to the new lens but she is now enjoying clearer version, both indoor and outdoors.

Boon Xin loves school activities like running and basketball. I am just happy that she enjoys an active lifestyle.

Ronan attended to us when we were at the store. Friendly and patient, he explained how Essilor® Stellest™ can help control myopia progression and is recommended for kids under 13 years old.

As kids are being exposed to electronic gadgets at a younger age, it is crucial for parents to adopt early measures to slow down myopia progression.

I learnt that cornea growth normally stabilise around 12 or 13 years old. This also means myopia progression would have likely stabilise by then.

After her eye examination , we found out that Boon Xin’s left eye degree remained unchanged, but her right eye degree had increased by 25.

It does not help that many parents in Singapore also suffer from myopic conditions, thus worsening the myopic issue (genetic).

Photo below, measurement and correction for Boon Xin.

Essilor® Stellest™ Lenses slow down myopia progression by 67% on average, compared to single vision lenses, when worn at least 12 hours a day.

It is also encouraged for Boon Xin to undergo eye examinations every six months to ensure that she is getting the best benefit from her lenses.

Nanyang Optical Eyelet Junior

Boon Kang’s second eye health-check in school confirms our fears, Boon Kang is myopic, and he is now a statistic in Singapore’s high rate of myopia 🙁

Genetically, both Mummy and Daddy are bespectacled, so we were hoping to delay kids’ myopic journey for as long as possible.

Nanyang Optical (NO) came to our rescue again. We are confident of Eyelet Junior, as we have witnessed how it has help Boon Wee to control his myopia. Read our 2012 review here.

We brought Boon Kang down to NO’s new branch at Nex. Our friendly optometrist Glenn was very helpful in assessing Boon Kang’s condition.

Eyelet Junior is all about design ingenuity, no screws and hinges! It is the world’s first stitch-locked eyewear, with inspiration from everyday stitching.

The lightweight frame is both durable and flexible, the metal bars on both side has a “springy” effect, griping our face snugly.

Boon Wee’s Eyelet Junior is already one year old, but still in good condition. He loves sports and Eyelet Junior frame grips his face comfortably without slipping off.

More importantly, we are happy that Boon Wee’s myopia condition has stabilised.

Eyelet Junior has garnered several international awards too.

Which frame is more suitable for Boon Kang’s image?

Daddy subtly reminded him no blue (same as his brother) or pink (might be feminine)…

He chose the Orange frame, which we all agree suits his colourful personality. We love the little strip of green 🙂

At the end of the day, whether you are wearing specs or not, we need to encourage our kids to practice good eye habits

Are we even wearing our spectacles correctly? Eyelet Junior’s grip enables our eyes to constantly focus on the same spot.

Unfortunately, Boon Kang’s younger siblings think it is “cool” to wear specs! Daddy has to emphasised that it is not Cool. Wearing specs is very inconvenient, and we are happy that Eyelet and Myovision are helping to minimise the impact.

Thank you Nanyang Optical and Glenn, for helping Boon Kang select his eyewear.
