Registration is open for the British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) Asia conference.
Taking place from 18–19 September 2018 at the Singapore Polytechnic Convention Centre, the event is a partnership between the BCLA and the Singapore Optometric Association (SOA).
BCLA Asia will include sessions detailing the very latest clinical guidance on topics such as myopia control, dry eye management and presbyopia delivered by leading industry figures including Professor Pauline Cho, Professor Jennifer Craig, Dr. Kate Gifford, Professor Eric Papas and Professor James Wolffsohn. There will be a range of hands-on workshops covering clinical skills, business and presentation/research skills.
An exhibition will allow delegates to get ‘hands on’ with the latest products and there will be plenty of opportunities to network with colleagues and the wider contact lens and anterior eye community.
The meetings attract a wide range of ocular health professionals, scientists and business experts
BCLA chief executive Cheryl Donnelly said the two day conference will showcase research and innovations in eye care. “We have been delivering cutting edge contact lens and anterior eye education to practitioners for 40 years and BCLA Asia is a chance to showcase new research and industry innovations in the field.
“The meetings attract a wide range of ocular health professionals, scientists and business experts, bringing together a unique interdisciplinary blend of knowledge and networking opportunities,” she said.
The BCLA Asia meeting will also allow delegates to apply for and complete a BCLA Fellowship, an indicator of esteem in the field held by more than 150 leading professionals across the globe.
BCLA President Keith Tempany said, “Growth in the contact lens market is particularly strong in Singapore and across Asia as a whole and BCLA Asia will aim to continue to build the confidence of eye care practitioners to prescribe contact lenses with a focus on prescribing to the presbyope, fitting children, speciality lenses and managing dry eye disease.
