Making myopia management and patient communication easy
Built from the ground up from continued feedback with eye care practitioners and industry advisers, these myopia management guidelines are an engaging infographic, designed to be printed double sided.
The first side, entitled ‘Myopia Management in Practice’, is a reference guide for eye care professionals. This side guides you through myopia risk factors, prescribing decision trees, follow up schedules and gauging long term success of your myopia management strategy.
The second side, entitled ‘Protecting Children from Myopia’, is parent-facing and designed to help you communicate your myopia management message including tiles on environmental advice; explaining efficacy of myopia management options, contact lens safety and benefits for children, and why myopia management is important.
To support your in-practice communication, these messages can be further enhanced by giving your patient’s parent / guardian the brochure and advice card, which are also available for download.

Each language download provides options to print in either US letter size or A4. The A4 version also includes a different variation of ‘Protecting Children from Myopia’ infographic, where atropine has been excluded. This is to reflect practice of many primary eye care practitioners where atropine may not be an option for them to discuss with patients. Note that atropine is still included in ‘Myopia Management in Practice’ as a practitioner information reference.
