Presbyopia Management Skills Transfer Workshop

12 – 13 November, 2022


Dear friends and honoured guests,

It is my greatest pleasure to welcome you to the first presbyopia management workshop in the region, organised by the Department of Ophthalmology, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore.

Presbyopia is a universal age-related phenomenon that afflicts every individual from the age of 40 years onwards. With our ageing society and digitally-dependent population, the need for effective and individualised solutions for presbyopia is ever greater. While it has traditionally been treated with reading glasses, recent decades have seen improvements in intraocular lens, laser refractive techniques and pharmaceutical therapies emerge as potential spectacle-sparing options. At the same time, incremental improvements in optical designs have also made spectacles a more attraction option than before. How do we choose the right therapy for our patients?

In this inaugural presbyopia management skills transfer workshop, we would bring you through the landscape of presbyopia management and different management strategies available. We will use peer-reviewed clinical evidence of various treatment options including glasses, the different types of laser refractive correction for presbyopia, pharmaceutical options, as well as intraocular lenses. You will also hear from leading regional and international experts, who will share their insights and experiences with various corrective strategies of choice.

The goal of presbyopia management is not to determine the single best treatment for presbyopia, but to find the most appropriate option for your unique patient. We hope this course will help you achieve this goal.

Finally, with the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, we hope you have a wonderful time at this course and in Singapore. I look forward to meeting you.

Yours sincerely,

David Chen
