Prof. Wolffsohn Speaks at CCLSA Meeting

Almost 50 optometrists braved dreary winter weather to attend the latest Cornea and Contact Lens Society Association (CCLSA) meeting held in Sydney’s King Street Wharf earlier this week.

The highlight of the evening was the keynote presentation of past President of the British Contact Lens Association and renowned researcher Professor James Wolffsohn (pictured). Prof. Wolffsohn discussed the practical management of dry eye and contact lens discomfort and presented the latest findings from the new Tear Film and Ocular Surface (TFOS) guidelines and the emerging evidence on the effects of UV exposure to the eyes.

The CCLSA also welcomed new NSW board member, Heidi Hunter.

The event was hosted by NSW CCLSA President Margaret Lam and sponsored by Johnson & Johnson and Abbott Medical Optics.

Professor James Wolffsohn also spoke at events in Melbourne and Brisbane. Melbourne’s event attracted 46 people to the beautiful GG restaurant, situated in East Melbourne, whle 26 people attended the event in Brisbane, held at the Greek Club in West End.

The CCLSA said it had an “exciting agenda” for the 12 months, with more events planned on cutting edge topics.

The next education event will cover Advances in Contact Lenses and Surgical Management of Keratoconus, and is planned for Tuesday 28 October in Sydney and Wednesday 29 October in Newcastle.

The CCLSA is committed to supporting Australian Optometrists and Ophthalmologists in the cornea and contact lens field, through education, research, professional development and networking.
