The OCULUS Myopia Master In Action – Q&A With Max Aricochi
Our new Q&A format is designed to explore a particular clinical topic, intervention, product or research paper with an expert. Here, we explore the OCULUS Myopia Master with practical questions of how optometrist Max Aricochi uses it in his clinic in Austria. We also provide you some additional tips to help you put Max's recommendations to use in your own practice.

Clinical Cases

Communicating With Parents About Axial Length
In this case, parents finally agreed to myopia management once they understood their child's axial length measurement. Read how to communicate with parents about axial length, to support your recommendations.
 Axial Length Growth At An Extraordinary Speed 
A child with myopia appears to have progressed 2.50D in a year. Axial length measurement provided invaluable data to validate this refractive shift - read more about the case and how the patient was managed.

Science to apply in practice

How We Can Identify Future Myopes
The axial length growth trajectories modelled in this study revealed that regardless of a child's age, a myopic shift of at least -0.85D and/or 0.74mm suggests future myopia development. Read more about specific risk factors for younger children, and other ocular component findings in this large study of white European children.
