New guidelines for myopia management

22/08/2018By Matthew Woodley
The Brien Holden Vision Institute (BHVI) has released an online tool designed to help eyecare professionals manage patients with myopia.

The ‘Guidelines for Myopia Management’ provide a framework that can be used to inform diagnostic tests and conduct risk assessments. It also suggests appropriate myopia management options, and schedules follow-up visits and tests.

The head of the Myopia Program at BHVI, Professor Padmaja Sankaridurg, said the latest evidence-based knowledge had been used to develop the guidelines, and that it would assist practitioners with the various steps for 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,” Sankaridurg said.

“The guidelines complement other resources we’ve developed to help practitioners meet increasing demands for myopia management skills, including our ‘Managing Myopia’ online course and ‘Myopia Calculator’, both of which have been translated into numerous languages.”

The guidelines can be accessed here.
