Myopia is a global problem. The rising prevalence and the risks of sight-threatening ocular pathology associated with myopia are well documented.

This consensus statement represents an overview of collective analysis, evaluation, and opinion based on input from the eye health sector clinicians, researchers and lead organisations listed at the end of this statement.
