ICCLC 2022: Don’t Miss It! 15–17 October 2022, Sydney

On its 60th anniversary, the Cornea and Contact Lens Society of Australia (CCLSA) is inviting optometrists to attend the 18th International Cornea & Contact Lens Congress (ICCLC).

ICCLC will take place at the recently updated International Convention Centre (ICC) in Sydney from 15–17 October 2022. ICC is renowned for its superb location and facilities, and its easy access, with much to do in the surrounding Darling Harbour precinct.

With a return to face-to-face networking and education, alongside a sold-out exhibition, ICCLC has plenty to get excited about.

Before COVID, there were few dedicated myopia management instruments. On show at ICCLC will be at least three such instruments that will become integral to practitioner’s management of myopia. There will also be presentations and workshops on myopia control, with experts sharing decades of experience in the field.

Dry eye and broad ranging contact lens care – with plenty of evidence and advice on fitting and management – are other topics that will be covered in depth, with over 50 lectures and workshops presented by dozens of leading local and international leaders in our professions.

International Keynote Speaker, the renowned Professor Lyndon Jones from the University of Waterloo, Canada, will deliver a broad range of topics and workshops, teaming up with long-time colleague, ICCLC Papers Committee Chair Professor Fiona Stapleton, to cover contact lens complications and aspects of contact lens practise and the ocular surface.

Other keynote speakers include Damon Ezekiel and Professor Stephanie Watson. Mr Ezekiel will be covering corneal rigid gas permeable contact lenses and sclerals in workshops and plenary talks while Prof Watson will delve into numerous aspects of keratoconus, grafts, inflammation and the ocular surface.

Professor Charles McMonnies, recipient of the 2022 CCLSA Ken Bell Medal, will deliver his lecture on some of the many highlights of an amazing career.

Brien Holden Vision Institute’s (BHVI) Chief Scientists, Professor Arthur Ho and Professor Deborah Sweeney are also worthy recipients of the 2022 CCLSA Brien Holden Memorial Award. Their lectures will feature milestones of the Cornea and Contact Lens Research Unit, BHVI and Australian achievements in the cornea and contact lens field.

ICCLC is enormously popular among contact lens practitioners. As one new graduate optometrist reported at the last conference, “The last ICCLC was such a fun and welcoming conference to attend, especially for early career optometrists/students. The lectures and workshops were all engaging and relevant to every day clinical practice.”

Make sure you don’t miss out by taking advantage of early bird deals and special packages, including those for Young Optometrists, Early Career Optometrists and students. Early registration will also ensure you don’t miss out on a space in the interactive workshops.

As Martin Robinson, ICCLC Conference Chair says, “Like you, I have watched a heap of webinars over the last two years. The things they do not give us are the technical pearls on techniques. These are often best learnt in hands on workshops and demonstrations. I have also been finding myself wanting to try new things for the first time. ICCLC will provide such opportunities. The words that best describe the ICCLC are ‘collegial, quality education in a friendly environment’”.

With that in mind CCLSA has a day suited to students and recent graduates with more interactive learning in dry eyes, ocular surface disease and contact lenses of all sorts. For those wanting a deeper dive, the Society has added an extra expert-level day.

With broad ranging topics, you can pick and choose which sessions to attend, creating a customised educational experience covering general, interactive and therapeutic CPD with up to 18.5 hours of Optometry Australia Institute of Excellence approved points.

The galactic gala dinner party, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, will be a great opportunity to let your hair down after years of lockdown: CCLSA is renowned as the ‘leaders in Edutainment’.

Join the CCLSA from 15–17 October 2022 for education that puts a smile on your face, and find out how great it is to get back to gala events.
