May 22, 2024 Staff reporters

The World Council of Optometry (WCO) is partnering with CooperVision to help advance myopia management as a global standard of care, introducing an interactive and educational resource for eyecare practitioners worldwide.  


The WCO CooperVision Myopia Management Navigator focuses on the three M’s of myopia management: mitigation, measurement and management. Each of the three sections is linked to content, including advice and practical actions to explore in the form of ‘Myopia Moments’, webinars and more. The Navigator also serves as a ready resource in clinical settings to provide guidance for patients and families in discussions about myopia management, said the partners.  


WCO recently appointed a team of four ambassadors to spread the word about the Navigator, based on their myopia management educational roles, outreach and practice-building initiatives, including Asia-Pacific representative Jagrut Lallu, partner of Rose Optometry in Hamilton, New Zealand.
