BCLA webinar explores myopia communications

A webinar hosted by the British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) on June 20 will outline how eye care professionals can discuss myopia control options with parents.  

Dr Jeffrey Walline, (pictured) associate dean for research at the Ohio State University College of Optometry in the US, will lead the session.  

‘This lecture will discuss evidence-based effective means of myopia control so optometrists know what to implement and what to tell parents about soft multifocal contact lens, orthokeratology, atropine, combinations, onset delay, and spectacles for myopia control,’ Walline said.  

Walline is the study chair of the Bifocal Lenses in Nearsighted Kids (Blink) study that investigated the myopia control effects of soft multifocal contact lenses.
