Lecture with discussion workshop: Beyond traditional myopia care - the emergence of repeated low-level red light therapy
Repeated low-level red light (RLRL) is a new, licensed approach for treating myopia progression in children. This session, will offer information into how RLRL works, supported by peer-reviewed studies that span from 12 months to three years across the globe. We'll also highlight how RLRL can enhance slowed myopia progression results when used in adjunct approaches with established optical myopia treatments and discuss its safety for use. The aim is that after this session, attendees will have been given information and the basic practical guidelines to be able to understand how to introduce RLRL into their myopia management and practice. This will be in the format of a lecture and discussion workshop, with 30 minutes for initial information delivery, and then 30 minutes for practitioners to discuss myopia management cases with the use of optical and RLRL therapy licensed options.
Practitioners will be able to explain to patients about the role of red light therapy for myopia management
Practitioners will recognise the role of red light therapy for myopia management.
