The event in Birmingham will be available to watch and interact with online

BCLA conference
The British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) will live stream its BCLA UK conference online, which takes place at The Vox at Resorts World in Birmingham on 14 June.

Lectures and workshops will be streamed on a dedicated BCLA UK website and online viewers will be able to listen and interact with speakers and attendees at the event.

President of the BCLA, Jonathon Bench, said: “We are excited to welcome a ‘virtual audience’ to BCLA UK and the live-streaming element will add a whole new dimension to the event and allow more people than ever before to access our education streams and get involved from the comfort of their practice, their home office or their sofa.”

The event will also feature an exhibition area, contact lens prescribing CET seminars and peer review sessions.
