Singapore has one of the highest incident rates of myopia, which is often handled by Optometrists and Opticians. Therefore, it is important for them to be updated with the latest evidence-based myopia management options through case-based learning to enhance the care provided to their patients.
This course is clinically relevant to the eye care industry and it will further assist the eye care practitioners to provide evidence-based care in line with Optometrist and Optician Board (OOB) practice guidelines.
The objective of the course is to provide practical insight and hands on workshop into myopia management for all ages. This will help Optometrists and Opticians to further enhance the care that is provided to patients with myopia.
