Presentation 

In recent years the field of myopia management has generated a great deal of interest from both practitioners and industry alike.  While the availability of myopia management products has steadily increased, a number of obstacles may still stand in the way of practitioners fitting them in practice. In this webinar we consider the factors impeding myopia management by practitioners; we use case histories to demonstrate how practitioners can tackle obstacles and integrate myopia management into clinical practice.
