Myopia Control Club
Myopia Control Club (MCC) at Berkeley aims to introduce students to the clinical aspects of evidence-based myopia control. By 2050, the prevalence of myopia (nearsightedness) is expected to rise to 50%. Myopia progression causes vision-threatening complications that can be mitigated with corrective lenses, atropine, etc. Guest speakers from Berkeley Optometry, industry, and research come to share new developments in myopia control and provide hands-on fitting workshops. We plan to also offer opportunities for student clinicians to assist with patient care and get hands-on experience with key instruments.
