Another outstanding myopia seminar with Tim Fricke
Myopia is a long-established bread and butter condition for optometry. But radical shifts in epidemiology are driving individual demands and public health needs for more proactive management.
Are there ways to adjust modern life to avoid myopia? Are we part of the cause of the ‘myopia epidemic’? Are there ways we can control myopia development in our patients?
Through the seminar guest presenter Tim Fricke reviewed the evidence and opened discussion regarding trends in myopia epidemiology and pathological consequences, and the range of myopia management options.
Local optometrist and OV member Kelly Gibbons spoke about the Visiting Optometrists Scheme (VOS) as part of the seminar.
Participants received 6T CPD points (with assessment).
