CooperVision has announced the expansion of its myopia management team in response to the growing global professional interest in myopia management.
Optometrist Elizabeth Lumb has been appointed head of professorial services for MiSight 1 day in Europe, Middle East and Africa. She also takes on the role of global brand manager for the contact lens.
Having led the introduction of CooperVision's MiSight lens into Hong Kong as a test market, optometrist Dr Chi Shing Fan has been named professional service and commercial lead for MiSight and speciality business in Asia Pacific.
Ms Lumb originally joined CooperVision in 2013 as professional services training manager for Europe. In her early career the optometrist worked at Eurolens Research conducting clinical contact lens trials and was a senior optometrist at Boots Opticians.
Dr Fan has worked at CooperVision since 2009, holding roles as professional services director for Asia Pacific and frequent replacement category lead.
Speaking about the new appointments, senior director of myopia management at CooperVision, Stuart Cockerill, said: “Closely partnering with eye care professionals is essential to advancing myopia management best practices, including embracing groundbreaking, proven technologies and educating parents.
“For more than two decades, Fan and Liz have earned the respect of colleagues and clinicians across Asia Pacific and EMEA. Their focus will further accelerate the adoption of MiSight, helping more children and their families benefit from this innovative approach,” he added.
