“Revamping our website was a significant undertaking, and the payoff has been truly rewarding as we reviewed the year-end results,” said Dr. Kate Gifford, co-founder of Myopia Profile. “With over 200 countries seeking information on diverse topics in myopia and children’s vision care, it’s evident that there’s huge appetite for high quality and effective content. We’re delighted to offer invaluable and ever-expanding resources, aiding in the fight against the escalating myopia epidemic.”
