Compliance with the College of Optometrists' guidance on myopia management
The publication of updated guidance on myopia management from the College of Optometrists in the UK has been eagerly anticipated by eye care practitioners (ECPs) and other key stakeholders. The College had previously indicated that the available evidence was not sufficient to support to widespread rollout of any myopia control intervention. The updated College of Optometrists Guidance presents a more balanced interpretation of the available evidence, which represents a positive step forward that is likely to benefit ECPs, parents and patients alike. This lecture will explore the core requirements that optometrists will need to address in order to comply with these College specific guidelines, while also considering international recommendations from bodies such as the World Council of Optometry.
