Genetic, or genomic testing, seems to be available for diagnosing a wide range of health conditions, but what if we could use the same method to predict myopia? Martin and Daniel introduce the latest episode in which Martin talks to Director of Research at Cardiff University, Professor Jeremy Guggenheim MCOptom who discusses the impact of genetics on myopia.
Jeremy will be speaking at our annual conference, Optometry Tomorrow (www.optometrytomorrow.org), taking place on 23-24 February 2020 at the Telford International Centre.
Look out for our myopia patient leaflet, available for members to order free of charge (www.college-optometrists.org/order).--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/collegeofoptometrists/message
