A pediatric case of macular myopathy is described. His best corrected visual acuity was -13.50/-1.00 x 40 with vision 6/24 in the right eye while for the left eye subjective acceptance was -12.75/-0.50 x 50, 6/18. Several visual and adaptive aids can help people regain or maintain their independence so that the child can continue integrated education. Pediatric Low Vision Management in case of progressive condition like Myopic Maculopathy should be an integrated approach of low vision aids and rehabilitation including vocational training.
