about imarc

The Indian Myopia Awareness and Research Conference (IMARC), intend to bring eye care professionals from across the country to one platform for updating ones understanding on myopia, various anti-myopia strategies (efficacy and mechanism) and discuss more about the evidence based practice for myopia control (world and Indian scenario) apart from the scientific oral and poster rapid-fire presentations.

Given that myopia has started to become a major public health issue in India too, with the increasing in incidence of myopia, updating ourselves (as a researcher or practitioner or teacher or student) about current understanding of myopia from both research and clinical perspective will help us combat myopia in India.

With the extremely renowned national and international speakers talking at IMARC, this conference is set to play an important role in Indian myopia scenario.

After the success of the first and second Indian Myopia Awareness & Research Conference (IMARC) in 2020 and 2021, respectively, we are now back with the 3rd edition of IMARC with a much bigger agenda. This year, the theme revolves around translational research and clinical discussions with sessions spreading across 3 full days. The sessions will highlight the “what, why and how” of myopia management. Keeping in view the current trend in myopia management and the need for more hands-on sessions, we have also included workshops on biometry, peripheral refraction and orthokeratology.  

We look forward to an excellent meeting with a combination of eminent scientists, academicians, clinicians, business delegates and students from different countries sharing new and exciting findings that will enable us to learn and discuss critical issues of this escalating problem. 

On behalf of the organizing committee of IMARC, it is with great pleasure that I cordially invite all the eye care professionals to enjoy the myopia feast on 18th, 19th & 20th November 2022.

I wish you all an unparalleled learning experience. 

The goals of IMARC is to update eye care professionals about

  1. Current understanding of myopia
  2. Various anti-myopia strategies, its efficacy and mechanisms
  3. Evidence based practice for myopia control
  4. Create a focus group of Indian myopia researchers and clinicians
