Keeping An Eye
The Association of Malaysian Optometrists (AMO) together with the Malaysian Optical Council launched the National Eye Health Awareness (NEHA) campaign on July 25 2017 to raise awareness on eye health and underline the need to have proper eye examinations and consultations. Supported by Johnson & Johnson Malaysia, the NEHA campaign was hosted at the St Giles Hotel and officiated by the Malaysian Ministry of Health’s Director of Medical Development Division, Dato’ Dr Hj. Azman Abu Bakar.
According to the World Health Organisation, the prevalence of myopia among children is dramatically increasing – particularly in South East Asia’s urban regions. As a matter of fact, one in two persons will be myopic by 2050, with Asians more prone to the condition due to factors like genetics, modern technology and lifestyle. AMO President Murphy Chan said, “With high proportions of myopia in Malaysia, there has been a strong demand for glasses and contact lens prescriptions. However, many of us are unaware that regular eye examinations are required to ensure that patients are free from eye disease and to help patients possess current prescriptions.” He continued, “Optometrists play an integral role as a first line response to providing primary eye care services to the public and we also believe that the consistent standard of contact lens practice can help enable more Malaysians to have healthier and more comfortable vision.”
