MYOPIA RELATED MEASUREMENTS
CYCLOPLEGIC REFRACTION INCLUDING DROPS (BEST PRACTICE)
For added precision assessing young children who may not be able to verbalize their vision issues.
Retinoscopy with accommodation well controlled.
To document if there are early features of myopiarelated pathology.
Thoroughly examine central and peripheral
retina under dilation, and where possible, record
observations using OCT and/or fundus photography.
AXIAL LENGTH MEASUREMENT (AL)
To assess risk of developing myopia and to monitor progression.
To guide clinical decision making on optical interventions, particularly contact lenses, so that they can be worn comfortably and compliantly.
Ask probing questions and use a slit lamp biomicroscopy to examine the anterior eye.
