(PRESS RELEASE) SAN RAMON, CA — Myopia Action Month, the global initiative that is bringing together eye care professionals (ECPs) to combat the growing prevalence of childhood myopia, concludes its last week with an uplifting international discussion hosted by CooperVision, who is a Premier sponsor. The conversation poses a series of thought-provoking questions to six ECPs, educators, and researchers regarding their personal journeys and experiences in myopia control and management.

As a global leader in the field, it’s a privilege to partner on initiatives like this inaugural event.”

The conversations center on the theme of “the one thing” that has helped define those journeys. The resulting story examines the core motivations that led the diverse group of participants to begin taking action, standout moments that have defined their experiences, and visions for the next five years.
