Axial length measurement advice to be shared in webinar

The first BCLA webinar of 2024 will look at using axial length measurement as a guide for decision making around myopia management.

With myopia on the rise around the globe and myopia management now playing a big part of the day-to-day activities in many practices, the webinar will help boost delegates knowledge of myopia and increase confidence when assessing patients.

Delivered by Karin van Hees and Daisy Laan, the interactive session will give guidance on when eye care professionals should start treatment and give indications as to when you can claim success and when you should stop.

Delegates will learn how to use axial length and progression as a guide in decision making and the hosts will provide tips on how to manage your patients without axial length data. The session will also focus on patient communication, education and how to choose the best treatment for your patients.

The webinar, entitled ‘Myopia in practice – evidence-based decision making using axial length growth charts’ and sponsored by Topcon Healthcare, will be held from 7pm on Wednesday, 27 February.

Karin Van Hees graduated from the University of Applied Sciences in Utrecht in 2010. She has been working with one of the leading Dutch contact lens practices ever since, with a focus on specialty lenses and myopia management. She’s chair of the Contact Lens Committee of the Dutch Association of Optometry (OVN) and an ambassador for contact lens safety and myopia.

Daisy Laan is an experienced healthcare professional skilled in both orthoptics and optometry. She has a Master`s Degree in Clinical Health Sciences and has extensive experience in myopia management in primary and secondary care. After seven years of experience in optics, Daisy now works in the hospital and as a lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences in Utrecht, contributing to both clinical practice and education in the fields of orthoptics and optometry.
