Axial length growth at an extraordinary speed

In this case study, a child with myopia appears to have progressed 2.50D in a year. Axial length measurement provided invaluable data to validate this refractive shift – read more about the case and how the patient was managed.

Communicating with Parents about Axial Length

Slowing axial length growth is the key goal of myopia management. In this case, parents finally agreed to myopia management once they understood their child’s axial length measurement.
Read how to communicate with parents about axial length, to support your recommendations.
