The Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO)’s National Clinical Committee (NCC) has issued a position paper for members on myopia, its treatment, and recommendations for advice to patients.
The position paper, the role of Dispensing Opticians & Contact Lens Opticians in Myopia Management , will be of interest to all eye care practitioners.
ABDO Vice President Jo Holmes is Chair of the NCC. She says, “Myopia is a growing issue, and dispensing opticians are well placed to address patient concerns and those of parents too. The aim of this paper is to set out a snap shot of current research and inform members about how they can guide patients who have or are at risk of myopia.”
