The Brien Holden Vision Institute (BHVI) has launched a myopia education programme that is available “anytime, anywhere.”

Launched at the 2019 American Academy of Optometry meeting in Orlando, US (23–27 October), the programme has been developed by BHVI with experts from around the world.

Director of professional services with BHVI, Pamela Capaldi, said: “We want to make our education programme easily available to our community of professionals, so they have the flexibility to sign up and learn while still managing myopia in their busy practices.”

The programme covers myopia management, strategies to manage complex cases and how to grow a practice by providing myopia services.

Practitioners have six weeks from starting to complete the courses, which feature interactive case studies, videos, polls and discussions.
