IMI represented at Conference on Updates in Contact Lens and Ophthalmic Optic in Italy

December 16, 2021

The thirteenth “Conference on updates in Contact lens and Ophthalmic Optic” held on 3-4th October 2021 in Monopoli (BA), Italy, had more than 400 eye care practitioners show up in person at the event. A dedicated session on myopia was held during the conference with presenters from both optometry and ophthalmology backgrounds, working in synergy to raise myopia awareness and promote myopia management approaches.

Our Italian ambassador Giancarlo Montani, Professor of Clinical Contact Lens Application and Co-founder of  the Centre for Contact Lens Research of the University of Salento, also the scientific and organizational manager of the Monopoli Conference said, “I was satisfied, not only with the numbers of participants but also with the enthusiasm that was breathed, a sign of the desire to return to see each other in person and to embark on the journey of myopia management together.”

It is with the dedication of our ambassadors, IMI can reach out further to the eyecare practitioners in different regions and make evidence-based myopia management knowledge accessible and create opportunities for improved patient care in myopia management.
