Presented by: Professor James Loughman, Head of the Centre for Eye Research Ireland (CERI) and Ocuco’s Clinical Research Director
Myopia is thought to be a modifiable risk factor for the development of eye disease and associated vision loss. As a result, alleviating Myopia symptoms with spectacles or contact lenses is no longer considered sufficient. The World Council of Optometry, the European Society of Ophthalmology, and the International Myopia Institute have recently called for an evolution in the standard of care for Myopia management. This clinical lecture will explore what the term “standard of care” actually means and the implications of implementing it for clinical practice.
