Discussion workshop: A desire to time travel

25 Feb 2024
CooperVision

By 2050 it is expected that 50% of the world's population will be myopic and in Western Europe, the rate is predicted to be 56%. Every dioptre of myopia has a significant effect on the risk of developing glaucoma, retinal detachment and myopic macular degeneration in later life. This session considers the ocular health of a myope in his mid-forties and discusses how we could have intervened had we had today’s knowledge when he was a child, and what effect that could have had on his risk of developing myopia-related eye disease.

Learning outcomes:

An understanding of myopia development and the risks associated with increasing myopia, and can balance those risks against the risks of management

An understanding of the evidence-base behind a range of options for myopia management, knows how to incorporate myopia management into clinical practice and at what stage to intervene

An understanding of the strategies for advising young patients and their parents on myopia development and management at various stages of myopia including pre-myopia

An understanding of the need for valid consent.
