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.

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.

Orthokeratology lens wear in lagophthalmos

Can a teen with lagophthalmos wear orthokeratology lenses? This case discusses the staining frequency in orthokeratology wear, the impact of lubricant eye drops and lens hygiene processes, and more tips for patient care.

Complex myopia cases: unilateral myopia with high astigmatism

Managing unilateral myopia with high astigmatism is complex, especially with reduced acuity. Is myopia control the best approach? Myopia correction versus myopia control is discussed in this case, along with further assessments and considerations in management.

What happens to binocular vision during cycloplegia?

Do you check your patient’s binocular vision function after cycloplegic refraction? Is this useful? An unexpected finding in this case leads to discussion of binocular vision changes in cycloplegic conditions, ideal management for exophores, and even the impact of low-dose atropine.

Compounded topical atropine: is every bottle the same?

How consistent is compounded topical atropine from bottle-to-bottle? What clinical results could indicate variability? Read more in this clinical case where a miniscule change in concentration gave notably better clinical outcomes.

Pre-myopia and young age: topical atropine or not?

Is a 3-year-old too young for low-dose atropine treatment? What about if they’re a pre-myope? Learn more about balancing proactive management with the research evidence and clinical considerations.

Clinical Leader Case Study: From pre-myopia through to myopia control with contact lenses

Myopia management starts with identifying pre-myopes and commencing the discussion with parents, so that future myopia control strategies can be successfully recommended. In our Clinical Leader Case Study format, read how Indie Grewal approached parent communication to smooth the way for eventual myopia control contact lens fitting.
