The Montreal Experience: A Look At What Is Working, What Is Not Working, For Whom and When?

Langis Michaud, OD, MSc, FAAO, FBCLA

Nowadays, myopia should not be considered as a simple refractive error but more likely as a loss of emmetropization process occurring early in life. When myopia evolves, it may become a significant risk factor for developing ocular pathology such as retinal detachment, choroidal neovascularization and glaucoma. This lecture aims to review the basic principles (3 pillars: binocular vision, environment, control of optical defocus) behind the current strategies used clinically to manage myopia. From a retrospective study made at University of Montreal, on over 450 files of patients followed for up to 2 years in average, author will demonstrate which strategy is most effective, based on several populations (low-moderate-high myopes), ethnical origins (Asian vs Caucasian) and gender (male/female).  Customization of orthokeratology lenses and soft lens designs will be also covered, with emphasis on the improved outcome coming from this approach.

3:15 pm - 4:05 pm

Biomechanics of the Cornea

Cynthia Roberts, PhD

The corneal is a viscoelastic structure with a time-dependent response to an air puff load which can provide clinical information about not only the intraocular pressure (IOP), but also the stiffness of the response.  Two clinical instruments will be described for the assessment of the biomechanical deformation response.  Basic biomechanical concepts will be presented, including the structure of the cornea and how that is altered by LASER refractive surgery, the presence of keratoconus, and the effect of a crosslinking procedure.  The importance of corneal biomechanics on the measurement of IOP will be explained.  Current literature regarding the source of the refractive effect of Orthokeratology will be reviewed, including the stromal and epithelial response. 

8:50 am - 9:40 am

Keynote: The State of Vision Care and the Role of Myopia Control

Nick Despotidis, OD, FIAOMC, FAAO, FCOVD

Entrants into healthcare such as goliaths Amazon and CVS-Aetna are positioning to disrupt the way providers deliver care to their patients.  Major players within vision care like Essilor-Luxottica, are consolidating to optimize profitability through efficiencies, while companies specifically founded to deliver “telemedicine” to fulfill some patient’s desire for convenience. This course will identify how healthcare providers can take advantage of these developments to prosper, using myopia management as one such example

Advances in Treatment Strategies for Myopia Control - What the Clinician Needs to Know

Randy Kojima, FAAO, FBCLA, FSLS, FIAOMC & Patrick Caroline, FAAO, FCLSA, FIAOMC

When faced with a young progressing myopic child, we have numerous interventions we might consider. When would we consider atropine? When would we consider soft multifocal lenses? When would we consider orthokeratology? How do each of these work? This course will discuss the approach to myopia control in kids today.

3:15 pm - 3:40 pm

Small Vs. Large Treatment Zones in Ortho-K

Randy Kojima, FAAO, FBCLA, FSLS, FIAOMC & Patrick Caroline, FAAO, FCLSA, FIAOMC

When we fit orthokeratology lenses, the goal of treatment is to produce the topographical bulls-eye. This centered outcome generally ensures quality vision and is believed to be the optimal myopia control shape. However, can we slow down eye growth even more by controlling the treatment zone size? This course will discuss why we would consider it and how we do.

3:40 pm - 4:05 pm

What Decentration is a Problem in Ortho-K?

Randy Kojima, FAAO, FBCLA, FSLS, FIAOMC & Patrick Caroline, FAAO, FCLSA, FIAOMC

A perfectly centered orthokeratology outcome is more the exception than the common finding. Some decentration of the treatment zone usually exists. Is this a problem? Is the myopia control outcome better or worse with decentered treatment zones? This course will discuss how we attempt to improve lens centration and whether a decentered outcome is good or bad for myopia control in kids.

Cary Herzberg, OD, FIAOMC

Have you ever felt that you knew just enough to be dangerous?!! Well this course may be for you. Structured to walk inexperienced fitters through some of the pitfalls involving fitting OK lenses especially when it involves more complex refractive conditions and the corneas they come with. It's ideal for those who have their first ten cases under their belt but are wondering where do I go from here. Concepts discussed are what the 80/20 rule is and why do some cases that appear routine become anything but. Included are examples of how to manipulate the lens fit for optimizing results especially when they are anything but. This course will cover basic concepts but also apply them as well to advanced fitting concepts of modern corneal reshaping.  Experienced fitters need not attend.

How to Get Mom to Say "Yes" to Myopia Management (and it's not what you think)!

Gary Gerber, OD

“Myopia” means different things to doctors, young kids, and their parents.  Getting parents to agree to this important treatment requires careful and well thought out analysis of every aspect of your practice.  What may appear to doctors as a seemingly small and inconsequential comment or office process, will make the difference to kids getting necessary treatment or having their myopia continually progress.

3:05 pm - 3:30 pm

I Can Offer More in Myopia Management Practice

Oliver Woo, FIAOMC

This course asks the question - Is Orthokeratology the ONLY option we offered in our practice to myopia management nowadays? It will also discuss experience in using different options available in the globe to manage myopia (those not available in USA and Europe), preliminary studies result in each option, and something that OrthoK can offer which we won’t think of.

A Novel Device to Monitor Individual Visual Hygiene for Myopia Control

Helen Changmin Duan, OD, MD, MS, FIAOMC

A novel, light, and convenient devise hooked on the temple of spectacles will collect and transfer the data considered to be risk factors for myopia on set and progression. The individual and on mass data collected for analyses includes posture of reading and writing, time and duration of near work, outdoor light exposure, frequency of warnings for poor posture, excessive near work, etc. The parents can monitor visual hygiene closely. The children are reminded and warned by a vibration signal when bad posture is detected or excessive near work reaches its designated limit. A meta-analysis will be performed when enough data is collected from China and other countries in the world for the analyses of contributing risk factors to the myopia epidemic, according to a recent research group report.

5:00 pm - 5:50 pm

Orthokeratology, Legal Considerations

Craig S. Steinberg, OD, JD

Orthokeratology and myopia control offer many opportunities for the modern eye care practitioner. But they are also fields that require a level of outside the box thinking and creativity in how to best utilize currently available products and materials to obtain the desired results. That means off-label uses, marketing based on anecdotal evidence, and dealing with skeptics. In today’s litigious society, it is essential that practitioners of myopia control have a thorough understanding of their legal exposure and how to best ensure that are protected from unfounded claims. This lecture is an overview of the legal issues, risks, and exposures unique to orthokeratology and myopia control raises and will provide insights and recommendations on how to minimize or avoid legal risks.

5:50 pm - 6:15 pm

The Effect of Visual Function Variations on Blur Sensitivity in Children After Applying Orthokeratology

Jingling Xu, MD, PhD

As one of the main methods to control myopia progression, Orthokeratology is increasingly applied in clinical practice, especially in myopic children. Studies have shown that although the naked visual acuity could be raised to a normal level after wearing overnight orthokeratology lenses, the visual quality was significantly reduced. Does this decline in visual quality affect children's perception of blur? The aim of this study was to investigate if the variation of visual functions would affect the blur sensitivity in children wearing orthokeratology lenses.
