From the Lab to the Exam Chair: What Clinical Research Tells Us About Myopia Management

This lecture will summarize the most recent research results published in peer-reviewed journal and major meetings about myopia management. It will also bring unpublished (yet) data about clinical research made at Université de Montreal, on a cohort of near 500 myopic children,  about efficacy of several myopia management strategies.  IT will explain choroidal response to various optical stimulus and the confirmation of a dose-response phenomenon in humans. At the end, it will translate, into clinical reality, how clinicians should adapt their myopia management strategies to these new realities.
