Objectives: This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (intervention). The objectives are as follows:. To assess the comparative efficacy of optical, pharmacological and environmental interventions for slowing myopia progression in children using network meta-analysis. To generate a relative ranking of the interventions for myopia control according to their efficacy. To produce a brief economic commentary, summarising the economic evaluations assessing interventions for myopia control in children. To maintain the currency of the evidence using a living systematic review approach.
