Peter Ivins Eye Care launched Scotland’s first dedicated myopia management clinic in 2014. Since then, our myopia experts have helped hundreds of young people slow their myopia progression. Our team are considered myopia experts and key opinion leaders within the optometry community in the UK. Our optometrist and director Craig McArthur has lectured extensively about myopia and myopia management throughout the UK, Europe and as far afield as the Philippines. He has published numerous articles on the topic of myopia control in Optician magazine and Optometry Today. Craig has provided educational courses and training materials to several contact lens companies since 2014.
Throughout the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown Craig delivered lectures remotely at various conferences including the British Contact Lens Association Conference – The BCLA and on behalf of CooperVision’s summer training programme on myopia control and use of MiSight contact lenses.
We are fortunate to be invited to trial and be the first to use many myopia management products because of our work on myopia over the years. We were amongst the first practices in the UK to offer MiSight contact lenses back in 2016. We are early users of Mark Ennovy’s Mylo contact lenses, VTI’s NaturalVue and Seed’s 1dayPure EDOF lenses. The practice is also hugely experienced in fitting OrthoK (orthokeratology contact lenses) having fit dozens of children and young people since 2010. We are also amongst the first practices able to fit and supply Hoya’s innovative MiyoSmart spectacle lenses for myopia control when the product launched in February 2021. Our myopia experts will be delighted to discuss your child’s risk of developing myopia and how best to slow the progression.
