Hoya Vision Care announced the roll out of a new myopia education platform for Ophthalmologists and Optometrists. The advanced learning platform, accessible globally, went live in late April. The goal of the platform is to provide independent continuing education and share the latest developments in myopia management to Ophthalmologists and Optometrists across the globe, in the efforts to fight the growing global problem of myopia in children.
The content will incorporate the latest evidence-based research, insights and knowledge from a variety of sources including global experts and recognized organizations including the World Society of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (WSPOS) and the International Myopia Institute (IMI) which Hoya has strong collaborative relationships with.
“The new global educational platform rolled out by Hoya Vision Care supports our mission to work collaboratively with the eye care community to address the growing rise of global myopia in children,” said Pascal Blaser, Global Medical Affairs Manager Myopia at Hoya Vision Care. “As a leader in myopia prevention, treatment and management this platform is just another step in our continued quest to advance awareness and education in the field of myopia.”
