Considering the excessive occurrence of myopia - and its inherent morbidit- it could ask yourself that the article is handled in simple terms sporadically in contemporary literature, and nearly by no means at foreign meetings. although, there has been a primary foreign convention on Myopia in big apple 1964, and the second one used to be held in Yokohama 1978, affiliated to the XXIII international Congress of Ophthalmology. the following it was once tried to set out strains for destiny myopia study, and, as a realistic implicaton, the organize ment of the 3rd foreign convention on Myopia used to be entrusted to Danish ophthalmolOgists. This convention happened in Copenhagen, August 24-27, 1980. To make the scope the widest attainable, the convention was once, as used to be the pre decessing in Japan, open not just to ophthalmologists, yet 'to all being energetic within the a number of facets of myopia research'. The convention record offers an image of the Copenhagen assembly. additionally, a platform or present prestige of myopia examine has hereby been demonstrated. The editors have made it their major job to rearrange the papers, and to deliver them in a sort suited to print, whereas feedback via editorial referees has been thought of beside the point. The papers supply an effect of the paradox nonetheless winning within the box, and even if 't,rends' are seen, a fmal consensus of convention was once now not arrived at. To rfile this situation, although, is taken into account an invaluable task.
