While working at the coal face of the myopia boom in clinical practice, I’ve shared my communication tools and management processes for progressive myopia across the world. In doing so, I have seen a burgeoning interest in this area from eye care professionals, while also a hesitancy to put research into practice without having the ‘perfect’ product to prescribe or system to follow.
