BCLA to Host First Conference in Asia

The British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) will stage its first conference in Asia, from 13-14 September, focusing on myopia management, presbyopia and dry eye.

Hosted in partnership with the Hong Kong Cornea and Contact Lens Society, the conference will include sessions for up to 400 people detailing clinical guidance on topics such as corneal topography and digital eye strain.

Experts will offer advice on business, research and presentation skills, and delegates will be given the chance to take part in a range of hands-on workshops. An exhibition will showcase the latest products, future strategies and innovations from both local and global companies.

Speaking of the conference, HKCCLS president Helen Eng said, “BCLA Asia is part of our mission to promote quality eye and contact lens care by providing our members with updated resources and support to better serve the community.

The conference is designed to showcase world class clinically relevant research and to nurture new researchers, clinicians and young academics to present at this level…

”We look forward to seeing a wide range of submissions for the conference and to having the opportunity to showcase the work of up-and-coming stars in the contact lens field.”



BCLA chief executive Cheryl Donnelly said, “The conference is designed to showcase world class clinically relevant research and to nurture new researchers, clinicians and young academics to present at this level. It provides a perfect opportunity to hear the latest research including that from the talented researchers in Asia.”
