CooperVision has agreed with the British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) to sponsor its myopia management certificate for an initial period of 12 months.

Luke Stevens-Burt, BCLA chief executive, said: ‘We are always keen to help our members improve their clinical expertise which in turn improves patient care. The myopia management certificate does exactly that and we are delighted to have CooperVision’s support for the next 12 months.’

CooperVision’s head of professional services, Krupa Patel, added that the company was thrilled to partner with the BCLA for the course.

‘Provision of high-quality education round myopia management is essential, and this qualification ensures practitioners are best placed to deliver up-to-date knowledge and best practice in this ever-evolving area,’ she said.
