Since the World Council of Optometry introduced its myopia management Standard of Care resolution in 2021, more than 48,000 optometrists around the globe have taken the pledge to make it an integral part of their practices.
Research has shown that actively managing myopia in childhood can slow onset and progression and prevent serious conditions such as retinal detachment and glaucoma in adulthood.
Embracing myopia management as a standard of care is smart for you and your patients. Become one of the many who are taking the pledge! And, spread the word among your colleagues who are interested in learning how to control myopia. It’s not too early to start! Take the pledge today!
