I’m elated so many of my fellow optometrists are eager to approach myopia management in a new way. Together, combining this type of innovative thinking with their professional expertise, we can achieve the best possible outcomes for our young patients.” “Even though I’ve treated myopia for the last 15 years, I came away from the CooperVision training and certification process with new information and insights that will make a difference in how I practice,” said Roxanne Achong-Coan, OD, FAAO, FIAOMC, FSLS, at Coan Eye Care in Ocoee, Florida. “Successfully tackling myopia progression is more than just fitting a lens. It’s helping parents and children make and follow-through on a decision that has significant implications for the child’s vision, today and throughout their lives. The Brilliant Futures Myopia Management Program will be a great asset to my practice and for so many kids and families in the Orlando area.” “What I learned while attending CooperVision’s inaugural launch event has me viewing myopia in a completely different way. Myopia is a disease. If a child has a certain amount of myopia, it can be a gateway to other serious issues, like retinal detachment and glaucoma,” said Mike Cymbor, OD, FAAO, at Nittany Eye Associates in State College, Pennsylvania. The Brilliant Futures Myopia Management Program seeks to create a new standard of care for children with myopia. It provides inclusive practice, child and parent support to create the optimal environment for compliance, satisfaction, clinical outcomes and long-term loyalty.
