EssilorLuxottica Supports New WSPOS Independent Medical Education Program on Myopia Management

(PRESS RELEASE) CHARENTON-LE-PONT, FRANCE — EssilorLuxottica supports the World Society of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (WSPOS) independent medical education program on myopia management, as a gold level supporter, which will be launched on November 19 and 20, at 2-4pm GMT.

The key goals of this program are to raise awareness of myopia, discuss underlying causes and longterm impact on quality of life, examine current and evolving strategies to slow myopia progression in children and define strategies to successfully integrate myopia management into practice for eye care practitioners.

The program ‘Comprehensive update on myopia management’ is a four-hour virtual interactive live symposium for eye care practitioners, where worldwide leading faculty will review the latest WSPOS myopia management guidelines, discuss how to navigate the latest treatment options, and share advice on how to best manage patients inside and outside of practice. The program will continue early next year with a digital supplement, three e-learning modules and three 60-minute webinars to continue this important education curriculum. Outcomes of learners will also be assessed to address the impact of the education on clinical opinions and practice patterns. Eye care practitioners can register for the program here.

Olga Prenat, head of medical marketing, professional relations and vision care education, EssilorLuxottica said, “We are very pleased to continue our partnership with WSPOS with this important program, and support its efforts to contribute to better vision for children. Through such programs, we look forward to supporting education to eye care practitioners to help them achieve better outcomes for their patients, in line with our mission to help people see more and be more. We encourage all eye care practitioners to participate in the program and will work together to continue to strengthen awareness and education on myopia and enhance access to available solutions to manage myopia worldwide.”

Dr. Ken Nischal, WSPOS co-founder and division chief, Pediatric Ophthalmology, Strabismus, and Adult Motility Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine, said, “On behalf of WSPOS, we would like to thank EssilorLuxottica for their support of our independent education program. EssilorLuxottica have been important supporters of WSPOS education programs in the past. I would urge all eye care practitioners to sign up for this program, led by a myopia management expert faculty, including WSPOS leadership, to adopt myopia management and help reduce the burden of related vision-threatening complications for their patients. I look forward to an engaging virtual program this year and also sharing more educational content that will be released early next year.”
