Monocular Myopia Management

Monocular Myopia Management: unilateral and anisometropic myopia

How should you best manage children with unilateral or anisometropic myopia? Learn about what drives aniso-myopic development, associations with amblyopia and ocular pathology, and the evidence base for orthokeratology to slow aniso-myopic eye growth.

How much axial length growth is normal?

What amount of axial length growth be expected in myopes versus emmetropes, and how can you tell if your myopia control treatment is working? This important clinical reference provides all this information and more on axial growth in younger and older children, emmetropes and myopes, and even data on typical myopia stabilization.

Selecting an option: Clinical Decision Trees in myopia management

There is no one-size-fits-all when prescribing for childhood myopia control. Which option should you choose? In this important reference article, we ask you to consider three key questions which form clinical decision trees in myopia management.

Presbyopic Myopes

Managing myopia in presbyopic adults

Managing myopia in presbyopic adults has specific goals in achieving good vision correction and best eye health outcomes. What should we consider if myopia progression is observed? This article explores progression, the ideal optical correction and ocular health considerations in presbyopic myopes.

Combination atropine orthokeratology

Combination atropine treatments: when more is more

Atropine is a treatment for myopia control, but do combination treatments such as with orthokeratology increase the efficacy? Learn about how well it works, which concentration, for whom it works best, side effects, treatment duration and more.

Atropine – wonder or weak treatment?

Atropine has been the apparent hero of myopia management since the 2006 ATOM1 study, and since then, low concentration 0.01% atropine has become the new hero and then fallen out of favour. This article describes how lower concentrations work to balance efficacy and side effects, which should we select now, and what newer research on formulations and combinations can tell us.

Four reasons why binocular vision matters in myopia management

Binocular vision is a much neglected (and even maligned?) domain of eye care where I’ve had numerous colleagues say their professional excitement and learning opportunities have been reinvigorated through seeing the clinical imperative and application in practice. Not only does binocular vision assessment add so much more to your clinical picture, and make optometric life more interesting, it could be the secret sauce that helps us bridge the gap towards 100% efficacy.

managing treating high myopia

How should we manage high myopia?

Children, teens and adults with high myopia need special consideration of not just myopia control, but the best type of myopia correction and the importance of ocular health management. Do high myopes progress more quickly? What are the risks and management options?

Which clinical tests are required for myopia management?

Which clinical tests are required for myopia management? Here we take you through the recommendations of the International Myopia Institute (IMI) Clinical Management Guidelines Report, with references to several more of the IMI Reports including the latest Volume in 2021.
