Our clinical lead optometrist, Gillian Bruce, is regularly called upon to share her expertise in Myopia Management, reducing the progression of short-sightedness in children, in the UK and further afield. She recently joined other highly regarded eye care practitioners, sharing hands-on experiences of what Myopia Management means to them. The discussion explored their passion for the work, and what myopia management can achieve for patients. You can read the full article here and watch excerpts from the discussions.

If you are interested in Myopia Management for your child, you can call the practice on 0131 225 2235 for further information.
