BCLA @Yours Roadshow: Fitting Kids – the facts and future of myopia control

The series of evening meetings will give eye care practitioners the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of how to run a successful children’s contact lens clinic.
One of the world’s leading experts in myopia control will travel the UK giving an insight into how to make sure contact lenses work effectively for children. Award-winning Australian optometrist Kate Gifford will hold the events in Birmingham, Manchester and London as part of a series of roadshows organised by the BCLA.
Kate, who is based in Brisbane and is a former President of Optometry Australia, will discuss a broad range of related topics on contact lens myopia control: lens designs, outcomes, the myopia control imperative, unanswered questions, clinical cases and a future picture of myopia control. 

Meanwhile, Paul Gifford will present a lecture titled ‘The Science and innovation of Myopia Control’. The presentation will cover the currently available methods for controlling progression of myopia, the evidence supporting their use in practice, and understanding the clinical imperative to do so.

The first evening meeting will be held in Manchester at the Manchester Museum on Tuesday 26 September. Subsequent meetings will be held in Birmingham at the Think Tank Museum on Wednesday 27 September, and Thursday 28 September in London Wembley at the Holiday Inn Hotel. All meetings will take place from 6pm to 9pm. CET has been applied for. 
The meetings are free to BCLA members while for non-members there will be a fee of £25.
