The International Association of Contact Lens Educators (IACLE) will introduce rolling updates to its flagship educational resource, the New IACLE Contact Lens Course, with the introduction of ICLC 2020.
From 2020, the course will be revised and updated at regular intervals by the world’s leading authorities in contact lenses and editors will review each lecture two years after its competition.
“ICLC 2020 will be the first update of the New ICLC, our most valued resource. Lectures will then be updated on a regular basis to ensure that users have access to the latest developments in the field and that the course remains relevant,” said Dr Shehzad Naroo, IACLE President.
With six modules and 33 lectures, the new ICLC is the most used and important of IACLE’s resources with 845 active members in 625 institutions in 78 countries, teaching around 20,000 students each year.
“In its 40-year history, IACLE has tackled – and continues to tackle – a large number of major projects,” said Dr Lewis Williams, IACLE Director of Educational Development.
“The New ICLC is now a wholly electronic product that bypasses the significant issues of production and distribution, makes supply almost instantaneous, enables easy updating as the contact lens discipline and related areas evolve, and allows for modification and correction as feedback from users is received.”
The release of ICLC 2020 represents a major milestone for IACLE as they celebrate their 40th Anniversary this year.
