Preventing vision loss through myopia education.
Our mission is to halt the global myopia (near-sightedness) epidemic by educating parents and doctors about prevention and correction.
WHAT WE DO
The Global Council on Myopia Management organizes professional education opportunities, promotes public awareness, and coordinates research activities.
JOIN THE FIGHT
Myopia is the leading cause of vision impairment globally, and a common cause of vision loss.
Myopia has reached pandemic proportions, in large part due to environmental and lifestyle factors. Myopia will affect an estimated 50 percent of the world population by 2050. The negative impact on quality of life for hundreds of millions of youth and adults is more tragic considering myopia is now largely preventable.
