Myopia Focus is proud to announce the addition of Mark Bullimore to its Advisory Committee. Bullimore is an internationally renowned scientist, speaker, and educator with over 30 years of experience in the field of myopia management. Now based in Boulder, Colorado, Bullimore received his Optometry degree and PhD in Vision Science from Aston University in Birmingham, England. He is a past president of the American Academy of Optometry Foundation and currently serves as an adjunct professor at the University of Houston, College of Optometry. His expertise in the field of myopia management will be instrumental in helping Myopia Focus on its mission to increase awareness of myopia management.
On adding his support for Myopia Focus by joining the Advisory Committee, Bullimore stated,
"Myopia is one of the most prevalent eye conditions in the world, affecting nearly 2.6 billion people globally. Unfortunately, myopia is often seen as a benign condition, and many people are unaware of its long-term consequences, such as an increased risk of developing serious eye diseases later in life. Thus, it is critical that we increase awareness of myopia management strategies to help prevent or slow its progression and reduce the risk of visual impairment."
Jason Higginbotham, Managing Editor at Myopia Focus, stated,
"We are thrilled to have Mark join our Advisory Committee. His extensive experience and expertise in the field of myopia management will be invaluable to us as we work to educate and inform the public about the importance of myopia management. With Mark's involvement, we are confident that Myopia Focus will continue to be a trusted resource for those seeking information and guidance on managing myopia."
The arrival of Bullimore, further strengthens the expertise of the Myopia Focus advisory committee, which already includes industry leaders including Bhavin Shah, Keyur Patel, Brian Tompkins, Sandip Doshi and Thomas Aller.
