Why change the way you treat myopia

In the past, eye care professionals saw myopia as a common vision problem, requiring vision correction only. Now, we know that myopia may lead to significant eye-health issues in adulthood3,6—and we are developing treatments that can help slow the progression of the disease itself. The difference is between correcting myopia’s symptoms, and actively managing the disease.This change from myopia correction to myopia management may require a bit more chair time, as well as more time monitoring compliance and progress in your patients. The goal of managing myopia is to give clearer vision today and better eye health in the future. The hope is that soon myopia management will become second nature to you—much like transitioning patients from spectacles to contact lenses.We’ll be there to help you every step of the way, with Master Your Abiliti™ professional support and training through our centers of clinical excellence, marketing materials, and other resources to help your practice transition seamlessly to myopia management.From a practical standpoint, offering myopia management through the Abiliti™ portfolio can help increase your patient base, boost margins and revenue, plus build retention.

Abiliti™ portfolio is a holistic solution built on three main pillars.
