Putting myopia control into practice.

We as Eye Care Professionals have all become aware of the so called epidemic of myopia extending across the world. Not just in the Far East but also on our doorstep. In Europe and the USA there is a doubling of the incidence of myopia in children over the past decades. Many of these children becoming highly myopic and at risk of sight threatening complications associated with every increased Dioptre of Myopia.
