Myopia is on the rise around the globe and myopia management can be a big part of our day to day activities in our practices. Boost your knowledge of myopia in this highly interactive session. When should we start treatment? When are we successful? When can we stop? You will learn how to use axial length and progression as your guide in decision making. Don’t have access to an axial length device yet? Don’t worry, we’ll provide tips on how to manage your patients without axial length data. We will also focus on patient communication, education and how to choose the best treatment for your patients.  CPD* ref C-107907.

*CPD is available to BCLA Members only.
