Today, myopia represents a true health emergency since it currently affects almost 30% of the world’s population and it is estimated that it will affect 50% of the world’s population in 2050. No time to lose!
Why Does Myopia Management Matter?
We understand that having effective solutions to slow the progression of myopia is key to delivering high-quality vision care services for your paediatric patients.
Little is said about it, but myopia begins at a very young age. Today, the situation is much worse. We have to bear in mind that our children start using electronic devices earlier and earlier, and their eyes are not prepared for this. Their visual health is at risk. This is real, and it is happening.
In fact, in recent years, research shows increasing myopia prevalence in children in the UK
Research conducted in the UK found that:
- Nearly 1 in 5 teenagers in the UK are myopic (2,3*)
- The prevalence of myopia in UK children is now more than double than it was in the 1960s (4,5*)
Although Imperium looks like a normal single-vision lens, it consists of a blur-free small area around the optical centre providing clear and sharp central vision. This lens is not only extremely effective in slowing down the rate of increase in myopia; it also combats the ocular elongation, and slowing down the progression of myopia.
Imperium also provides additional benefits which allow you to offer your patients more choice
An effective Solution
Caledonian Optical invites you to enhance your myopia management offering with our new IMPERIUM.
The efficacy of IMPERIUM has been evaluated in the first randomised, double-blind study conducted specifically in a European population. The sample for this clinical trial included 83 children aged 5-12, divided into two groups: 42 children wearing single vision lenses, while 41 children wearing Imperium lenses during the 12 months of follow-up.
Results of the study showed that IMPERIUM reduces myopia progression in comparison to the use of standard single vision lenses. Specifically, the growth of axial length was 39% smaller in the group wearing Imperium than in the control group wearing standard single vision lenses after 12 months of follow-up.
