Online peer review: Aftercare in myopia management – progression and stabilisation



Interactive CPD points: 3

This session is delivered in partnership with CooperVision.

Myopia management was declared as a standard of care by the World Council of Optometry in 2021 and supported by new guidance from the College of Optometrists in 2022. We are seeing an increase in the use of myopia control interventions globally as well as across Europe, including the UK and Ireland. As practitioners are seeing patients further into their myopia management journey, questions are being asked about how to manage some of the findings during aftercare visits, as some patients, understandably, continue to progress despite being managed, as well as those who appear to be stabilising and stop progressing under management.

During this peer review, cases will be used to explore some examples which may appear in any practice and overcome some of the concerns which may be raised by parents and carers as to whether the intervention is working or still necessary.
