Optometric Management Education (OME) recently presented the live two-hour CE course “Mythbusters: Myopia Edition,” which provided attendees with a dynamic understanding of the current landscape for myopia care. The course, presented by OME faculty members April Jasper, O.D., F.A.A.O., and Mark A. Bullimore, MCOptom, Ph.D., F.A.A.O., offered insights into myopia, including:

  • the current research related to myopia progression and management.
  • practical steps on how optometrists can be proactive in helping patients who have myopia, and their parents.
  • assumptions about myopia management compared with what the current research reveals.
