BCLA Visionaries Conference
In collaboration with the Medical Contact Lens and Ocular Surface Association (MCLOSA) 
30 November 2018, The Royal College of Physicians, London

The British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) will be teaming up with the Medical Contact Lens and Ocular Surface Association (MCLOSA) to present a joint programme in November within the BCLA Visionaries event in London. This joint conference is an exciting collaboration which will see the UK's leading optometrists, contact lens opticians and ophthalmologists come together to exchange knowledge and develop their ocular surface and contact lens skills for the benefit of patients.

This exciting one-day conference will feature an exhibition of our prestigious educational event sponsors alongside a full programme of presentations delivered by a high calibre of speakers, including the presentation of the 2018 BCLA Pioneers Lecture, together with a networking lunch. In keeping with the tradition of the Pioneers and Visionaries events to incorporate something for every interest, the lectures will present current and new thinking on key topics of relevance to everyday contact lens practice and ocular surface management.

The BCLA Pioneers Lecture will be delivered by Associate Professor Jennifer Craig. 

The MCLOSA Kersley Lecture will be delivered by Professor Christopher Liu, OBE.
