Losing Sight brings into focus a detailed account of how myopia, particularly childhood myopia, which presents risk of ocular diseases such as cataracts, retinal detachments, glaucoma, and macular myopathies later in life, can now be treated with therapies that slow eye elongation.

From 4 November, recordings of all three regional panels will be available for ticket holders to access online. A schedule for the live panel discussions will soon be available.
