If you haven’t heard by now, Coronavirus is not the only pandemic. With the World Health Organisation estimating the world will be nearly 50% myopic by 2050,1 myopia is reaching pandemic levels. With significant increased risks of sight threatening eye disease, is it a wonder it’s become the buzzword in optometry?
Even just slowing progression by one dioptre can significantly reduce the risk of eye diseases such as detached retinas, glaucoma and cataracts.2
I’m a clinical eye care professional working in independent practice – not a researcher or academic – and I hope to bring some common sense and practical advice to fitting NaturalVue 1 Day Multifocal contact lenses; a unique, centre-distance, aspheric, extended depth of focus solution for myopia management.
On completion of this module, you should:
- Understand the optical design of the NaturalVue EDOF multifocal,
- Understand the role of this lens in myopia management,
- Appreciate how to introduce myopia management to parents in practice, and
- Understand how to fit the NaturalVue EDOF multifocal.
