Myopia management guide launched

BHVI has produced an online myopia management tool that is available online 

BHVI myopia guidelines

The Brien Holden Vision Institute (BHVI) has launched an easy-to-use, practical tool that is designed to help practitioners manage patients with myopia.

The free to access online Guidelines for Myopia Management provide practitioners with a framework for diagnostic tests, risk assessment, appropriate myopia management options and scheduling follow-up visits and tests.

Head of the myopia programme at the BHVI, Professor Padmaja Sankaridurg, explained that the guidelines will act to remind practitioners of the various steps they need to go through in appropriately assessing and treating myopic patients.

“I encourage practitioners to go to our website to view the guidelines and utilise them in their practice. They are free and simple to use and we see them becoming a vital addition to myopia management practice,” she said.

The BHVI also offers an online myopia calculator, which has been translated into a number of languages. 

CEO of the BHVI, Yvette Waddell, confirmed that the resources that are being established by the Institute are part of a long-term strategic focus on myopia.

She said: “We will continue to develop relevant tools, online education courses and other materials to equip eye care professionals with the latest evidence-based knowledge, while the myopia management market segment develops and grows globally.”
