SAN RAMON, Calif. — CooperVision’s Asia Pacific team will be hosting the Asia-Pacific Myopia Management Symposium. For those attending in-person, the event will be held on Friday, November 11, at the PARKROYAL COLLECTION in Singapore. For those attending virtually, the event will begin on Thursday, November 10, at 7:30 pm ET.

The symposium features international myopia management researchers and thought leaders presenting evidence-based treatment modalities and the latest patient and practice management thinking on myopia management. CooperVision is hosting this hybrid event in collaboration with the Singapore National Eye Center (SNEC) and the Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI).

The event will focus on both scientific and clinical evidence, as well as practice and patient management strategies. Among the scientific highlights are myopia intervention options, the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in myopia, and lessons learned and remaining unknowns from the world’s longest soft contact lens study for myopia control. Similarly, practice management highlights include decision-making of evidence-based treatment modalities and common myths in myopia management. This iteration also features a lively Rapid Case Fire — Myopia Management Soft Contact Lens, OrthoK, and Atropine.

The event is chaired by: Associate Professor Audrey Chia, MBBS (Hons), FRANZCO, PhD; Li Lian Foo, MD, MMed (Ophth), FRCOphth, BEng (1st class honors); and Tacy Song, MSc, Asia-Pacific Head of Professional Affairs, Myopia, CooperVision.

This CME and CPE-accredited symposium is geared towards ophthalmologists, optometrists, and any healthcare practitioners (HCP) wanting to learn more about slowing myopia progression, or involved in the management of myopia-related practices in Asia.
