In this case, a colleague has his first experience with the new Essilor Stellest spectacle lens for childhood myopia, with discussion including when to change the prescription and when to stop treatment.

Understanding the new Essilor Stellest spectacle lens

Spectacle lenses which effectively control myopia progression are the next phase in widespread uptake of myopia management. Learn more about the Essilor Stellest lens, from myopia control to vision and visual function outcomes.

When axial length progresses, but not refractive error

In this case, we meet a child whose axial length has progressed 0.4mm in one year, even with myopia control treatment. Yet, his refractive error hasn’t changed. What could cause this and what is the best course of action?

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.

Can we predict long-term efficacy from short-term outcomes?

Comparison of myopia control interventions shows that around half of the total efficacy is observed in the first 12 months. How can we use this knowledge to select and monitor the most suitable treatment for the individual child with myopia? Learn more here.

Clinical Leader Case Study: Managing myopia with the family

This case is highlights that myopia management decision making includes much more than a child’s refraction. Learn how Keyur Patel involved the parent in the conversation and decision making, to determine the starting myopia management option for now, as well as considering the future.

Clinical Leader Case Study: First myopia correction

Parents can be conservative about childhood contact lens wear, especially if they have no experience of myopia themselves. Read how Bhavin Shah successfully guided parents into embracing MiSight 1 day for their eight-year-old daughter, as her first myopia management strategy.

When to start myopia control

When to start myopia management

Myopia is becoming more common, as knowledge on detection and management increase. When should you start myopia control? Here we present an overview of when you might start myopia management across the spectrum of patient presentations. Since every child and their family are unique, we also point you towards more information for each situation.

A future high myope: diagnosis with axial length

This case study explores clinical data for a 7-year-old child whose refractive error and axial length is changing at an alarming rate. How can we best determine the rate of progression and set our management plans, using axial length?

Managing the non-myopic eye in unilateral myopia

If your patient is a unilateral myope, sometimes the myopic eye is the easier one to manage! This case study explores the options to appropriately diagnose, track and manage the non-myopic eye in a unilateral myope – where the non-myopic eye seems to be progressing faster than the myopic eye treated with orthokeratology.
