Susie Jones MCOptom and Nicola Logan MCOptom

The authors offer evidence-based advice and practical tips on how to incorporate myopia management into clinical practice, including how and when to start the conversation with potential patients and parents, as well as strategies to adopt when commencing myopia management. The authors outline the myopia interventions available and provide advice on how these can be implemented in a clinical scenario. They also discuss safe practice for contact lens use with children and ideas to optimise contact lens application and removal chair time with children.
