We are building a movement...to stop myopia in its tracks!

We know that almost half the world’s population will be myopic by the year 2050, with nearly one billion people in the high myopia category. Myopia Awareness Week is about getting people talking about myopia in homes and optometry practices around the world.

“We want to improve communication about myopia and its implication on lives, particularly children. We want caregivers to understand that children’s eye health is an important part of their overall health and development. We also want to make sure that optometrists are equipped with the knowledge to help treat their myopic patients. Ultimately, our efforts are about building a movement to fight this myopia epidemic that we all we see coming,” - Dr Scott Mundle, President, World Council of Optometry.

“There is much happening in research, product development and professional education to meet the myopia challenge, but it is critical we engage with those at the front-lines – eye care practitioners – to ensure they have the understanding and tools to protect our children’s futures,” - Yvette Waddell, CEO, Brien Holden Vision Institute.
