Consider the Management of Myopia a "new standard of care", as outlined by several global optometric and ophthalmologic organizations (see their most recent published guidelines below).

QUESTIONS FOR CONSIDERATION

Ensure everyone is aligned with the practice's approach, including selection of candidates, interventions to be utilized, and the discussion of risks and benefits.
