Myopia guidance review - Part 1

College clinical advisers Dr Paramdeep Bilkhu MCOptom and Daniel Hardiman-McCartney FCOptom MBE discuss the latest updates on myopia management guidance including the recommendations for ensuring best practice. Dr Bilkhu, who co-led the guidance review, also discusses the importance of explaining risks and benefits as well as how the different management options compare.

"Whether myopia is within your scope of practice or not, you should make sure that you have the relevant knowledge and can hold a discussion with patients and their parents about myopia, how it is treated, the supporting evidence and the costs and benefits of myopia management. This will help them make an informed decision."
