Prof Niall Strang looks at the latest views on the use of low-dose atropine in the slowing of myopic progression and the likely potential this may have for the future for UK-based practitioners in myopia therapy.
Dr Tariq Aslam looks at the review of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCO) guidelines for the screening for retinal disease due to the systemic use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine and how the optometrist may be usefully involved in the multidisciplinary approach to future screening and monitoring.
