A Novel Device to Monitor Individual Visual Hygiene for Myopia Control

Helen Duan, OD, FIAOMC

Learn about a unique behavioral apparatus that can help monitor a child’s myopigenic activities. This device hooks on the temple of a child’s glasses monitoring individual behavior.  It will provide a vibration warning for poor posture and when excessive near work reaches it’s time limit.  Learn how this is being used in in China and other parts of the world.
