Myopia in children is a jarring issue that our world is currently facing. As a result, major lens companies from the optical industry have introduced myopia control and management lenses, whilst ophthalmologists and professional optometrists continuously recommend new and improved myopia management lenses to the parents of myopic children.
Spectacles are composed of both lenses and frames. However, as most consumers prioritise the importance of lenses, the need for a good pair of frames often gets overlooked.
Although myopia management lenses are essential in any pair of spectacles hoping to slow down the progression of myopia, it does not solve the prevalent issue of children’s spectacles frequently slipping down their nose bridges. This phenomenon continues to cause children’s eyes to constantly misalign with the lens, which reduces the efficacy of myopia management lenses.
Eyelet’s frame design concept has a huge emphasis on balance. Malleability and weight of the frames are huge considerations in our design process.
Eyelet frames are resilient and durable, thus not easily damaged by children’s careless handling. Its ergonomic design also ensures the frame does not slide down the nose bridge through a firm grip that stabilises the frame in the proper position on children’s faces at all times, allowing children’s eyes to always be aligned with the lenses. Not only does Eyelet frames enhance the effectiveness of myopia management lenses in slowing down myopia progression amongst children, it also provides a comfortable and fashionable wearing experience.
