Managing Myopia One Child At A Time by Langis Michaud, OD, MSc; Remy Marcotte-Collard, OD, MSc; Patrick Simard, OD, MSc, MBA; and Mhamed Ouzzani, PhD, describes the most recent scientific advances in myopia management and translates them into a unique clinical approach called The Montreal Experience. With more than 15 years of experience controlling myopia and treating several hundred children and young adults, the authors have developed a practical and successful approach. Using specific cases that explain their process and reasoning, the authors provide the reader with insight and confidence to help manage their myopic patients.

This recently published book starts by first reviewing the peer-reviewed, evidence-based literature. Then, the expertise developed at the Université de Montréal is explained, and the decision tree that dictates the practice of the eye care professionals who work there every day is explored. The treatment options are described from a theoretical perspective and the clinical perspective of the authors. Clinical cases are used to illustrate the topic. These are not perfect cases where everything goes as planned, but instead they are actual cases which sometimes require practitioners to think outside the box to optimize the results obtained. 

After reading this book, eye care professionals will be able to understand key concepts such as customization, dose-response, the importance of the pupil area, and axial length as the critical metric for myopia progression control evaluation.

The most significant beneficiaries of the knowledge imparted from this book will be all the myopic children, treated in a personalized way, who will slow their axial length progression and preserve their ocular health throughout their lives. Most importantly, after reading this book, you will become convinced that optimal myopia management begins one child at a time.
