OT, in partnership with the AOP, will host a series of virtual education sessions focused on myopia management in May, bringing the profession together to hear from experts and share learnings on the topic.

Mayopia Day, which is headline sponsored by CooperVision, will be held online on Sunday 22 May, featuring key topics in myopia management and with all sessions offering interactive CPD points.

Education will be delivered by CooperVision, Johnson & Johnson Vision, Hoya and Essilor.

OT clinical editor and AOP head of education, Dr Ian Beasley, explained: “The programme is designed to appeal to all, from those who are new to myopia management, to experienced practitioners wishing to consolidate and update their knowledge in the subject area.”

Members are invited to attend for the full programme, or attend specific sessions of interest.

Beasley commented: “In 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,” he said.

More details about Mayopia Day, including education sessions and bookings, can be found on the AOP website.
