This course will describe the need for myopia control, currently available myopia control options with a focus on alternative specialty lens options, their effectiveness, their safety, and why (decrease dependence on vision correction, decrease odds of developing a secondary ocular disease, and increase practice revenue) practitioners should offer myopia control to their patients. This lecture will then describe the experiences of developing both university-based and private practice-based myopia control specialties clinics along with tips for successfully growing these practices.
