MAYopia Day - Session 2 - Webinar: Evidence-based myopia management practice



Where: online

Interactive CPD points: 1

Optometry Today (OT), in partnership with the AOP and CooperVision as headline sponsor, are pleased to host a day of myopia-themed education.

The event offers a full day of online sessions delivered by experts from the UK and further afield providing key insights on the contemporary management of myopia in clinical practice.

The programme has seven 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.

Webinar: Evidence-based myopia management practice

A range of interventions aimed at slowing myopia progression in children are now available in the UK market. However, for the optometrist it can be challenging to know how these interventions compare. The first step is consideration of the evidence supporting their use in clinical practice.

This session will delve into the critical aspects of establishing an appropriate evidence base for interventions aimed at myopia control. It will explore various factors essential for understanding and evaluating the efficacy of interventions designed to manage myopia. Attendees will gain insights into the significance of robust clinical trials, longitudinal studies, and meta-analyses in shaping evidence-based practices for myopia control.

The session will also highlight the importance of considering diverse methodologies, sample sizes, and statistical analyses in interpreting research findings accurately. In addition, discussions will extend to the relevance of evidence synthesis from both randomised controlled trials and real-world clinical settings, emphasising the need for comprehensive evidence to guide effective interventions for myopia control. This presentation aims to guide eye care professionals in navigating the evidence behind new and emerging strategies for myopia management for enhanced patient care.  

Learning outcomes 

  • Practitioners will be able to communicate effectively with patients and their parents about myopia management options using an evidence-based approach 
  • Practitioners will be able to compare and contrast different interventions for myopia management using an evidence-based approach.
