The British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) has opened registration for its clinical conference and exhibition, which has selected the theme of #AlwaysLearning.

The event takes place over three days from 30 May–1 June at Manchester Central Convention Complex and will include an awards dinner on the Saturday night.

Chief executive of the BCLA, Cheryl Donnelly, said: “It promises to be a weekend to remember, featuring a host of passionate speakers who can inspire eye care professionals to make a real difference to patients’ lives and ensure we are always learning.”

“This meeting will deliver the latest innovation and clinical insight, with world class speakers on all areas of contact lenses and ocular surface health presenting lectures, holding live podium demonstrations and staging a number of practical hands-on workshops showcasing the very latest techniques,” she added.
