The Cornea and Contact Lens Society’s biennial flagship conference – the 17th International Cornea and Contact Lens Congress (ICCLC) – will take place at Peppers, Noosa in Queensland, from 11–13 July.
Recognised as the leading conference of its type in the southern hemisphere, this year’s programme will appeal to a broad spectrum of optometrists, with exciting themes, lectures, workshops, panels, Q&As, and poster sessions.
Leading international keynote speaker Tom Arnold will share his expertise in scleral lenses, problem solving, social media and more, while Christine Sindt will also share her expertise on sclerals, ocular shape and eye lid interactions. Keith Parker and Randy Kojima will discuss their perspectives and cover technology, topography, RGPs and more.
Other keynote talks from local experts on myopia, Kate and Paul Gifford, will look at key aspects of myopia control and Jason Teh will cover the ocular surface and dry eye.
Many more clinical speakers, academics and ophthalmologists will present on a range of topics – from basic contact lens fitting and management, to relevant research, clinical tips and pearls. Sponsors and supporters will provide an exhibition of the latest equipment.
Friday afternoon has been reserved for pre-conference workshops that will suit the majority of delegates arriving that day. There will also be an opening street party on the Friday and a gala dinner and party on Saturday night.
Over 50 CPD points are on offer, ahead of the end of the CPD year in November.
Registration opened in April and many delegates have already registered with the early bird discounts. Spaces are now limited so be sure to get in quickly.
