Myopia is thought to affect half of the population by 2050, which is why management from optometrists is required, to potentially reduce the extent of myopic progression in patients. Michelle Hanratty talks to Professor Ed Mallen about the threat of this “epidemic”, before we hear from a patient, Elodie, and her mother, Elizabeth, about the impact that MiSight lenses have had on their lives. Michelle then asks optometrist Kathryn Webber, manager of the Myopia Management Clinic at Bradford University, how to play an active role in myopia control.
