16th International Myopia Conference in Birmingham

Members from the Auckland Myopia Lab attended the International Myopia Conference held at Aston University, Birmingham, UK. 

Dr John Phillips gave a talk on the interaction of atropine and optical defocus on choroidal thickness, and Dr Philip Turnbull talked about the effect of virtual reality headsets on the eye. We also had a number of other researchers presented posters of their research - ranging from Summer students, to Masters, to PhD, and Postdoc!
