Myopia Management Matters
Myopia is the most common refractive error worldwide and is estimated to rise to affect about 50 percent of the global population by the year 2050. Higher levels of myopia are associated with vision-threatening complications such as retinal detachment, macular degeneration, cataract, and glaucoma
A Myopia Management Solution
X-Cel Specialty Contacts has been committed to the management of myopia for nearly two decades. The introduction of REMLens® is another step forward in our dedication to the myopia management category. The design gives practitioners the ability to utilize numerous parameter options creating a viable option for myopia management. REMLens® offers 5 diameters for optimized lens centering and now offering expanded optic zone options creating the appropriate peripheral defocus used in Myopia Management.

REMLens® Is Your Myopia Management Solution
X-Cel Specialty Contacts understands the critical need for eye care professionals to have a choice when it comes to prescribing specialty GP lenses for the management of myopia for patients of all ages.
REMLens® features a four-curve, reverse geometry design with an advanced and revolutionary Dynamic Edge Profile™ providing superior on-eye comfort in an open and closed eye environment.*
REMLens® provides a time-saving method of lens designing through our on-line REMLens® design calculator. Additionally, REMLens® requires zero financial investment in a large fitting and dispensing set.
Our easy-to-fit procedure allows for immediate fluorescein evaluation and excludes the need of having the patient wear the lens in a closed eye environment for a limited period before making a final fit assessment.
"Ortho-k fitting is all about customization. The REMLens® from X-Cel allows me to tailor my lenses to meet the demands of all my patients. The adjustable optic zone diameter gives me the ability to maximize the peripheral defocus in pediatric patients while giving me the flexibility to reduce glare and aberration in adults who seek crisp and clear distance vision correction."
- Andrew J. Biondo, OD, FSLS, Kirkwood Eye Associates, St. Louis, Missouri
"From personal experience, I struggled with several designs of Ortho-k lenses because they increased aberrations, especially at night when my pupils were larger than the standard optic zone diameters of most manufacturers. Because of REMLens' adjustable optic zone diameter, X-Cel was able to design a lens with a larger optic zone diameter. The results for me were that aberrations have been dramatically reduced which allows me to drive at night comfortably again by increasing the size of the OZD. So now, I wear my REMLens every night and love my vision."
