Professor Lyndon Jones will host a CooperVision Lecture in the Midlands as Part of its Changing Perspectives International Seminar Series next Tuesday (March 19).

The event will focus on the clinical considerations for contact lens material selection and myopia management, alongside a CET-accredited discussion workshop.

Cities across Europe, including Birmingham, Munich, Warsaw, Stockholm, Prague, Budapest and Nice will stage events in the series aimed to help Eye Care Practitioners (ECPs) focus on the opportunity contact lenses offer in helping improve the lives of their patients.

The UK event, entitled ‘Changing Perspectives, Changing Lives’, will take place on Tuesday March 19 from 5.30pm at The Vox Conference Centre close to the NEC. Delegates will get the chance to hear from world renowned guest lecturer, Professor Lyndon Jones from the University of Waterloo in Canada. Key presentations will explore recent developments in myopia management and the clinical considerations for using silicone hydrogel material in a daily disposable modality. The event will feature a Q&A panel and conclude with a discussion workshop worth three CET points on optimising contact lens aftercare.

Director of Marketing and National Accounts at CooperVision, Mark Draper, said: ‘We’re thrilled to bring our International Seminar Series to Birmingham and give practitioners the opportunity to hear Professor Lyndon Jones’ perspective on reducing hypoxia, myopia management and contact lens patient retention. ‘We’re confident that the seminar series will really help highlight the clinical factors in lens recommendation for today’s daily disposable patients and their demands in terms of health, lifestyle and convenience, as well as providing a valuable forum for dialogue with a world leader in contact lens research.
