BCLA Contact Lens Hub

In the Optrafair 2017 visitor survey, visitors asked for more contact lenses – and we have listened! At Optrafair 2018 there will be co-hosting with the British Contact Lens Association, a dedicated hub devoted to all your contact lens needs. Experts from the BCLA will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about how Contact Lenses and Dry Eye Management can revolutionise your practice and give advice on how you can make the most of these opportunities.

A series of peer-review sessions will also be held, providing an invaluable opportunity to top up your CET points on key subjects such as Ocular Surface Health and Dry Eye, and Fitting Children including Myopia Management.

Free to attend, the full BCLA Contact Lens Hub is now available to book here.
