BCLA in collaboration with SOA 
18 - 19 September 2018, Singapore Polytechnic Convention Centre

The inaugural BCLA Asia conference, held in 2016 in Hong Kong, was hugely popular with hundreds of delegates attending and we are returning in 2018 with the major event now being jointly staged by the British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) and the Singapore Optometric Association (SOA). The two-day event, sponsored by Alcon, CooperVision and Menicon will take place on Tuesday 18 September and Wednesday 19 September at the Singapore Polytechnic Convention Centre.

The Asia conference will once again deliver sessions blending the latest research and clinical guidance on relevant topics. In addition, there will be a range of hands-on workshops covering clinical skills, business and presentation/research skills. The exhibition will allow delegates to get ‘hands on’ with the latest products and the sponsors will update the audience as to their innovations and future strategy. There will be plenty of opportunities to network with colleagues and the wider contact lens and anterior eye community, especially at the Welcome Reception on the first evening. The BCLA Asia meeting will also allow delegates to apply for and complete a BCLA Fellowshipan indicator of esteem in the field held by over 150 top professionals across the globe.

This conference is a great opportunity to continue the growth of the eye health industry in the region and we are thrilled to be heading to Singapore – a city known for its thriving business sector and a pioneering commitment to innovation. Growth in the contact lens market is particularly strong in Singapore and across Asia as a whole and the event will aim to continue to build the confidence of eye care practitioners to prescribe contact lenses with a focus on prescribing to the presbyope, fitting children, speciality lenses and managing dry eye disease. 

The draft programme is currently being prepared and will be available to download soon. In the meantime, for more information, please contact events@bcla.org.uk
