ABDO NCC issues myopia management position paper

ABDO’s National Clinical Committee (NCC) has issued a new position paper for members on myopia, its treatment, and recommendations on giving advice to patients.

The paper, ‘The role of dispensing opticians and contact lens opticians in myopia management‘, is designed to support all eyecare professionals in everyday practice.

ABDO vice president Jo Holmes is chair of the NCC. She commented: “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 snapshot of current research and inform members about how they can guide patients who have – or are at risk of – myopia.”

The paper can be found in the Policy & Regulation section of the ABDO website.
