Course overview

The short course aims to equip you with the knowledge and skills to diagnose and manage progressive myopia. The course offers an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the latest evidence-based optical, pharmacological, and behavioural interventions to appropriately manage progressive myopia. You will be equipped with practical skills to be able to identify individuals at risk of myopia development and progression and develop personalised management plans for simple and complex myopia cases.

Through the progression of this course, you will also learn how to critically appraise the literature regarding new therapies, so that you can develop life-long skills to be able to independently evaluate the literature on new therapies as they are introduced.
