MYAH allows you to monitor the progression of myopia and compare measurements with the growth curves for axial length. The majority of myopic eyes become myopic principally because of excessive axial elongation1
By using the extensive axial length dataset collected by Erasmus University (Rotterdam, NL)2 now incorporated in MYAH, you can monitor axial length and then compare the patient’s data with normative growth curves. Therefore, you will be able to better understand a child’s risk of myopia in adulthood
