When to start myopia management?


Myopia management should begin as soon as myopia is detected in children. Early intervention is crucial because the sooner treatment is initiated, the lower the end point prescription will be and the lower the risk of developing high myopia, which is associated with a higher risk of vision complications later in life. 

Regular eye exams can help detect myopia early, allowing for timely implementation of management strategies such as specialized contacts, atropine eye drops, and lifestyle modifications.
