Berkeley Optometry Drs. Christine Wildsoet, Maria Liu, Sarah Kochik, Elise Harb, and Nevin El-Nimri are tackling issues related to myopia. All are part of Berkeley’s Myopia Research Group. The publication, Women in Optometry has recently featured the group.
Myopia has become increasingly common the world over, at least in part due to changes in visual habits and increased time devoted to near activities such as smartphones and laptops. Together, the Berkeley group is exploring the best options for controlling the progression of myopia.
