11 Jun MAX HITS THE USA AND VISITS THE ‘VISION BY DESIGN’ CONFERENCE IN ORLANDO
After 10 years of planning and coordinating his schedule, Max finally got to a Vision By Design conference. This year it was in Orlando, Florida and it did not disappoint!
The theme was myopia control in general, rather than the specific use of Ortho-K (OK), to slow myopia progression. Not surprisingly, given the unprecedented worldwide increase in myopia – the largest eye health problem facing the world today, beyond an epidemic!
He heard the latest and the best OK techniques, as well as binocular vision training and the use of low dose Atropine to control myopia. There were also lots of workshops covering all aspects of specialty contact lenses including post laser eye surgery, post graft and Keratoconus (a very serious disease of the cornea). Max is looking forward to applying this new information to the benefit our patients.
