Interactive CPD points: 1

Johnson & Johnson Vision logoIn recent years, myopia has become an area of practice where clinicians have the opportunity to not only correct, but also influence the progression of myopia and improve clinical outcomes for their patients. With a rapidly changing evidence base and an ever-growing portfolio of clinical solutions available, it is important that practitioners are updated on the latest developments in the field and incorporate myopia management tools within their skillset.

This event offers a full day of education on the theme myopia management designed to bring the profession together to hear from experts and share learnings in this key clinical area. The programme will deliver five live webinars, each offering one interactive CPD point. Delegates are invited to attend the full programme or choose individual sessions based upon their clinical interests.

Session two: Myopia: the basics

Few areas of optometry have been afforded the interest granted to myopia management. Escalating prevalence, a rise in patient and practitioner awareness, boosted by increasing access to commercially available products are all likely to have contributed to this unparalleled interest. To help practitioners keep abreast of such changes and understand the theory underpinning myopia management, this presentation aims to simplify the topic of myopia through offering a basic overview of the current state of play.
