Seminar Abstract

For years, eye care practitioners and researchers have been looking for a cure for myopia. Although the outright cure for myopia has not been discovered, slowing the progression of myopia may prevent the myopic children from developing high myopia. To date, there are four typical types of myopia control methods that have been proven to be effective. They are dualfocus soft contact lenses, Orthokeratology, Atropine and myopia control ophthalmic lens. Implementation of a myopia control treatment in clinical practice will become a core service for myopic children because it may reduce the risk of high myopia complications and ultimately improve the quality of life of children. In this talk,


Dr. Oliver Woo will share with us how he embraces different types of myopia control methods in his practice and offers myopia management to children.
