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.
