MANAGING MYOPIA COURSE - 20TH JUNE

How many times have you had a child with fast-progressing myopia, and their concerned parent asking what can be done about it? To date, you could treat their symptoms, but not the progression.

Did you know, a recent practitioner survey on attitudes to myopia management highlighted that close to 70% of practitioners are still correcting myopia with single vision lenses as their primary mode of correction?

Stemming from this, the Institute created an online Managing Myopia course for optometrists, addressing the need to compile evidence and guidelines for myopia management into a concise, clinically relevant education program for practitioners.

The online course is an engaging and interactive learning experience that includes:
  • 14 videos (view at your own pace)
  • 8 interactive case studies (complete at your own pace)
  • An interactive webinar (5th July 2017, 7.30pm)
All content is delivered online and can be accessed using a desktop PC, tablet or mobile.
The course will take around 4 hours in total, including attending the webinar.
