Myopia Profile Launches Myopia Management with Spectacles

First of Its Kind Online Course Supports Adoption of Myopia Management Glasses
to Deliver Treatment to More Children Worldwide

In an exciting, first of its kind development to help bring treatment to more children worldwide, Myopia Profile has launched Myopia Management with Spectacles (, an online course designed to support and accelerate adoption and clinical success.


Myopia Profile, the internationally trusted clinical myopia management information center for eye care professionals (ECPs), built Myopia Management with Spectacles to introduce the latest research on myopia management lens designs and share important, evidence-based foundational knowledge on prescribing these glasses for children of all ages.  Myopia Management with Spectacles joins a powerful lineup of Myopia Profile resources aimed at combating the global myopia epidemic.


Myopia Profile Co-founder Dr. Kate Gifford said, “Spectacle lenses are a hot topic in the field of myopia management, with the potential to help a vast number of children worldwide who may not have access to or be candidates for other treatment options. We know that managing myopia early can provide kids with more stable vision over time and help head off serious eye health issues that can develop in adulthood. Myopia Profile created the Myopia Management with Spectacles course to equip more ECPs with the information they need to confidently adopt this emerging technology, wherever they may practice.”


The two-hour Myopia Management with Spectacles online course features interactive text and image content to provide an engaging and comprehensive learning experience. The course covers all aspects of spectacle lens prescribing for myopia, from first corrections in very young children to progressive addition and bifocal lenses through the latest technologies and next generation lenses for myopia control.


Learning objectives include the clinical rationale for specific use of single vision spectacles in children with myopia, the evidence for various myopia control spectacle interventions, a simple comparison of spectacle lenses to other treatments based upon scientific evidence, understanding the latest technology lenses for myopia control, and practical aspects of spectacle lens prescribing including frame fitting and parent communication.
