Optometry seminar in Mongolia

Continuing from last year, from June 14 to June 18, 2011, AMDA is conducting a second seminar in Ulaanbaatar designed to explain the advancement in optometry technology. An expert was invited to Mongolia from the Japanese glasses technician association to give a lecture for the past two days concerning correct information and technology related to children's ametropia and strabismic amblyopia as they were a primary concern for the optometrists. The remaining two days will be spent on practicing eye examinations for glasses.

The 100 trainees came from various regions of Mongolia. Some even made the 700-km day long car ride from the Dornod province. After speaking with the trainees there were feelings such as "Correctly measuring children's visual acuity is an important thing we need to consider for these children's futures," and "The comprehensible guidance has helped me redress my knowledge and skills which I thought were barely passable before I attended this seminar." There was also an increase in the number of voices expressing the need to teach the importance of properly choosing glasses for children not solely based on style, as well as the desire to study in Japan if the opportunity for training were there. One-third of Mongolia's population is under the age of 18. This is the generation that will be shouldering the burden of future health care costs. This is an important concern the Mongolian society considers, and AMDA is working to help support improve the health of this age group.
