Myopia management: a comprehensive approach

This paper follows on from our earlier Position Paper, Myopia in the 21st Century and its Management by Eye Care Professionals. This new Position Paper considers the World Council of Optometry 2021 resolution on myopia management standard of care, considering three main components: measurement, management, and mitigation. It makes recommendations with respect to each.

This paper was developed and written by José Manuel González-Meijome, Chair of the European Academy of Optometry and Optics’s Education Committee, with input from Martin O’Brien of ECOO’s Professional Services Committee.

In January 2023 a slightly updated version replaced the paper originally published in October 2022.
