Getting Started with Myopia Control
This lecture, recorded at Eyecare in January 2017 is ideal for anyone considering myopia control. It discusses the research behind myopia control with contact lenses. It includes data about the prevalence of myopia in the UK and Europe and looks at lenses which are designed to reduce the progression of myopia. It reviews how these lenses work and when to fit them. The choice of options available, and their success rates, including soft lenses, OrthoK and atropine are compared.

Myopia Control - the current thinking within the profession and evidence based management
Clinical intervention strategies now allow the optometrist to slow the progression of myopia and effectively reduce the risk of developing associated ocular pathology instead of merely correcting the myopic refraction.
