Feb. 12, 2020

The cover topic of the February 2020 edition of Vision Monday reports on “Myopia Management: Developing Myopia as a Specialty.” Articles featured in the issue represent how individual optometrists are working to build a myopia management specialty in their practices. They include:

  • A 20-Year Journey to Perfect the Practice of Myopia Management
  • San Francisco ECP Draws Upon Treehouse Eyes’ Resources
  • Mentors Pass Along Key Elements of Myopia Management
  • Orlando Practice Finds Success With ‘Proactive’ Approach to Myopia

“To date, most eye care professionals have not incorporated myopia management into their practices to any significant extent, primarily due to a lack of knowledge about how to integrate pediatric myopia management into a primary care optometric practice,” Dwight Akerman, OD, FAAO, Review of Myopia Management’s chief medical editor, told Vision Monday in the cover story. “ECPs have a professional responsibility to discuss myopia management options,” he added and presented insights about research, statistics, treatments and companies in the category.
