The British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) has introduced a new ‘Clinical Spotlight’ category of submissions for BCLA 2011.
In addition to the current call for clinical workshops, the Association is inviting submissions of continuing education/professional development sessions for presentation at its 2011 Clinical Conference and Exhibition to be held on 26-29 May at Manchester Central, Manchester.
“The new Clinical Spotlight category has been developed with contact lens and eyecare practitioners in mind,” explained BCLA President Elect and Conference Programme Committee member, Dr. Catharine Chisholm. “We are inviting practitioners to submit proposals on topics that are relevant to clinical practice today, providing conference delegates with valuable take-home ‘pearls’ to apply in their day-to-day practice.”

Groups or individuals are invited to submit proposals for a two-hour Clinical Spotlight session on any topic relating to contact lenses and/or the anterior eye. Proposals should comprise one-and-a-half hours of continuing education presentations, followed by a 30-minute Q&A period.
The deadline for submissions is 24 September 2010. Successful applicants will receive a conference voucher worth £100 for each speaker, which can be used towards their 2011 full delegate fee.
The BCLA conference is recognised as the premier international contact lens event on the global calendar and attracts around a thousand delegates each year from the UK and overseas. The conference programme features the latest developments in contact lenses.
