The latest edition of Ophthalmic and Physiological Optics (OPO) provides optometrists with the latest research and key unresolved debates in the field of myopia.

The special issue, which honours the achievements and marks the passing of renowned myopia researcher, Josh Wallman, represents a fantastic resource for all those with a special interest in myopia.

Brand new to this issue are the Point-Counterpoint articles, in which leading researchers debate key issues in myopia research.  Each debate includes a summary of the points of agreement and the issues to be resolved and aims to fully expose questions and uncertainties that lie deep within these topics, making them the perfect starting point for any further research on the topic being debated.

David Elliott, Professor of Clinical Vision Science at the University of Bradford and Editor-in-Chief of OPO, said:  “I am exceptionally proud of this tribute to our colleague and friend, Josh Wallman, who was known for his support of junior researchers.  The guest editors have done a wonderful job of gathering together the latest research in myopia, and the debate articles are true to Josh’s spirit of always being willing to challenge dogma in our field. We trust that these articles will provoke and challenge the myopia researchers of the future into thinking of new ways to tackle these continuing problems.”

The issue is available on the College’s website,
