for the latest in myopia management & orthokeratology
Orthokeratology Society of Oceania Conference 2018
The biennial OSO conference was recently held on the Gold Coast on 5-7th October. With a large number of presentations by world-renowned eye experts and researchers over the three days, it was the perfect opportunity for our optometrist Philip Cheng to keep fully up-to-date with the latest international research findings in all aspects of childhood myopia, myopia control treatment options and Ortho K.
In this complex and ever-evolving area of clinical practice, we never stop learning as myopia control practitioners. As new ideas and research data come to light, we adapt our myopia management strategies so that our patients always receive the best care based on the latest available evidence.
European contact lens manufacturer Mark'ennovy will soon release a new line of customised soft contact lenses called MYLO, designed specifically for myopia control. Developed in collaboration with the Brien Holden Vision Institute in Sydney to lead the global fight against childhood myopia, the new contact lenses incorporate innovative Extended Depth-Of-Focus (EDOF) technology to reduce myopia progression by around 50%.
The Mark'ennovy MYLO lenses will be available in a wide range of prescriptions, from -0.25 to -15.00 dioptres. The lenses are fully custom-made in different sizes and curvatures, for optimised lens fitting and vision. Eye health is assured with breathable, high-oxygen silicone hydrogel lens materials. It is a monthly replacement contact lens worn during day-time.
Here at the Melbourne Myopia Clinic we very excited about this product and our optometrist will be among the first in Australia to offer this new option to our patients as part of our comprehensive myopia control treatment program. The expected release date is Sep-Oct 2018.
