    The well-known Brien Holden Vision Institute has forecast that by the year 2050 one out of two individuals could be affected by myopia. Those affected have a greater risk of developing severe eye disease such as cataract or retinal detachment and eventual blindness.

    This outlook makes it more than clear that early detection and management of myopia are becoming more and more important.

Master Myopia in future!
Early and accurate measurement and reliable follow-up of myopia

With myopia prevalence increasing in children, adolescents and young adults and growing exponentially overall, it is becoming more and more important to monitor for myopia early on in life. Simply put: The earlier myopia is discovered, the better. Children should therefore be regularly tested for myopia from the age of 4.

The greatest changes in myopia occur from age 6 to 16 when the eye can start growing out of focus. This results into a bigger axial length of the eye and myopia. Once the eye is grown longer, there is no method shrinking the eye again. The treatment of myopia reduces the eye growth, or, in the best case, stops it. This demonstrates how important it is to regularly test children already at an early age.

The best combination:
Refraction, axial length and keratometry

Refraction
Refraction

The standard method for measuring myopia is by refraction. However, due to day-to-day changes in visual acuity as well as measurement variability, refraction tests are prone to fluctuation and unavoidable measurement inaccuracies.

Axial length measurement
Axial length measurement

The axial length of the eye can be measured accurately and independently of accommodation. Progression in axial length is a reliable indicator of progression in myopia.

Keratometry
Keratometry

The central corneal radii are what ultimately determines the refractive component of the myopic process . These can be automatically measured and succinctly displayed using a keratometer.

The solution for the future:

The Myopia Master® from OCULUS

Previously there was no all-in-one device available for performing refraction, axial length measurement and keratometry in combination. The only option was to purchase at least two devices, but this still left one with no myopia software.

The Myopia Master® from OCULUS now enables optometrists and ophthalmologists to position themselves optimally for the future. The Myopia Master® combines the most important parameters, making myopia detection and management much easier and more reliable than ever.

Myopia Case Report – New standard of care in children

Author: Max Aricochi, Myopia Expert,
Isser Optik, Innsbruck, Austria

With progressive myopia already experiencing an extreme increase over the past few years, this drastic situation is further fueled by the changing eye demands associated with the Covid-19 crisis. This Case Report shows how myopia management was performed in an 8-year-old exophoric patient.

Myopia Management with Orthokeratology

Author: Jaume Pauné, PhD, Optometrist,
Orthokeratology Specialist, Centro Médico Teknon, Barcelona, Spain

In myopia had been stated that avoid overcoming 26 mm of axial length or less of -6.00 D is of importance. Even more, if we know that every additional dioptre increases myopic maculopathy by 67 %. Today, orthokeratology (OK) is a gold standard for optical devices. Between them, Double Reservoir Lenses (DRL) easily allow customization, as changes in back optic zone diameter, for better myopia control in children.

Myopia management for pre-myopia

Author: Dr. Philipp Hessler, M.Sc. Optometrie/Vision Science,
CEO Optik Hessler, Erlenbach a. Main, Germany

The increasing myopia prevalence opens a new field for optometry. Educating parents and kids about risk factors, monitoring regimen and treatment options is an ethical responsibility as well as a new task for preventive optometry to identify those at risk for developing axial elongation along with severe eye health issues later in life.

I was initially introduced to the OCULUS Myopia Master® in 2019 (in the UK) and I was very excited to try out this new device which would enable me to measure axial length, refraction and keratometry, all at the same time. Previously there was no all-in-one device available for performing refraction, axial length measurement and keratometry in combination.

Myopia risk

Myopia: short-sightedness in children and adolescents on the rise

When it comes to the spread of myopia some studies already speak of an epidemic. The well-known Brien Holden Vision Institute has forecast that by the year 2050 one out of two individuals could be affected by myopia. That is alarming, and it makes it more than clear that early detection and management of myopia are becoming more and more important. For there is no other way to effectively reduce the risks of myopia in children and adolescents.

Numbers speak a clear language

A comparison illustrates the rapidity of this development: In the year 2000 22.9% of the global population were affected by myopia and 2.7% had high myopia beyond -5 diopters. According to Brien Holden's forecast, by 2050, 50% of the world's population could be myopic and at least 10% could be suffering from high myopia. The development is also dramatic within Europe. According to data recently presented by the European Eye Epidemiology Consortium, more than 47% Europeans between 25 and 29 years of age are myopic

 

Risk of severe eye disease on the rise

Those affected also have a greater risk of developing severe eye disease such as cataract or retinal detachment and eventual blindness. In general it can be said, that the earlier the myopia onset, the higher will be the myopia in the adulthood and the higher will be the risk for severe eye disease.
