Myopia Master Put to Work with UQ Students

The first of University of Canberra’s final year Vision Science and Optometry students, and children alike, are set to benefit from the delivery of an Oculus Myopia Master to the University’s Health Hub optometry clinics.

William Robertson (Designs for Vision), Dr Monica Jong, Associate Professor Mei Boon, and (sitting) Dr Pat Arthur.

Supplied by Designs for Vision, the Oculus Myopia Master accurately measures the eyes’ axial length, refraction and keratometry; three functions critical for effective myopia management. It presents the data alongside a summary of risk factors obtained via questionnaire, in a clear and easy to understand way. A predictive tool, developed by BHVI for the exclusive use of Oculus Myopia Master, enables practitioners to demonstrate a child’s likely myopia progression with, or without treatment, based on parameters specific to the child.

Discipline Lead, Associate Professor Mei Boon said the University’s final year students, especially, will be using the instrument during their placements at the University of Canberra Health Hub Optometry Clinic.

“The Myopia Master will be used during student-led teaching clinics, including specialty clinics with a focus on children’s vision, which will be held after school at the University of Canberra Health Hub optometry clinics,” she explained. “In addition, Master of Optometry students will conduct a research project using the instrument under the guidance of Dr Monica Jong and Dr Pat Arthur.”
