This landmark paper examines the theory underlying the reporting of myopia control efficacy and the sequelae of such investigation. The authors propose an alternate method of reporting efficacy; Cumulative Absolute Reduction in Axial Elongation (CARE), which conveys the benefit that a child receiving a specified treatment might expect, independent of age, progression rate, refractive error and ethnicity over a stated time period.
Welcome to Part 2 of 4 fabulous updates from the 2019 biannual International Myopia Conference! Read on for more about predicting axial length growth, refractive growth and translating statistics into real world progression. Mark and Noel’s latest research on understanding myopia control efficacy is described below.
