Mehta Opticians is one of the only premium Essilor retailers in Powys and Mid-Wales.
Essilor has been innovating long before its inception in 1972. Its' two parent companies, Essel and Silor have been responsible for some of the most significant ophthalmic innovations of modern times, including the Nylor and the Varilux, both of which are still sold today.
Now the largest ophthalmic lens manufacturer in the world, Essilor's formidable research and development department continues to defend its place at the very forefront of premium quality ophthalmic lens technology.
If you've ever worn varifocals before, you'll know the uncomfortable, limiting experience of having to 'point your nose' at what you want to look at.
This is because in traditional varifocals, each section of the lens has just one focal point, meaning that you need to move the lens to accommodate the object that you're seeing.
Essilor's revolutionary Varilux X Series cross-optimises its nanoptix elements by clusters in seven, so that each area of the lens can accommodate multiple focal points within a single gaze.
In a recent consumer survey of 2742 people, the new Varilux X Series achieved a satisfaction rating of 95% and a monumental 9/10 people said they no longer felt that they needed to move their head to see clearly in near and far distances.
The Varilux X-Series is a lens that is significantly easier to wear than previous generations of varifocals. If you've had difficulty wearing varifocals before, the Varilux X-Series is the lens for you.
More children are getting myopia at a younger age, partly due to a rise in sedentary indoor lifestyles and an increasing amount of time spent in near activities.
The younger a child develops myopia, the further it evolves and the higher it becomes. Studies showed that high myopia may lead to severe vision impairment that can no longer be corrected through standard lenses. It can even increase the risk of ocular complications later in life.
Essilor's new Stellest lenses utilise a unique constellation of lenslets that control eye growth by helping to slow down eye elongation and myopia progression.
A state-of-the-art 2-year clinical trial evidenced that Essilor's Stellest lenses slow down myopia progression by 67% on average.
Perhaps more remarkably, the eye growth of 9/10 children wearing Stellest lenses was similar or slower than that of non-myopic children.
Essilor's Stellest lenses will help you to ensure that myopia does not interrupt your child's development.
