BCLA Webinar: Myopia: Theory (The "why" and "how" of AXL measurements)

This session will provide an opportunity for delegates to understand the important role axial length measurements play in the early diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of myopic patients, and how this data can be used and presented  to enhance communication with parents and children, as well as to support clinical decision making.  The use of axial length growth curves will be discussed; their use in understanding the likelihood of developing high myopia in adulthood and their use to monitor the need to start or modify interventions.  Cases will be used to highlight where using axial length measurements in combination with standard refractive procedures have enabled treatment protocols to be adapted based on patient responses with a view to improving outcomes.
