This could represent a significant contribution to the development, understanding, appreciation or usage of contact lenses, through invention, research, industrial work, clinical practice, or a similar level of contribution relating to anterior eye or technology for assessing the anterior eye, or such other means that are considered appropriate by the council of the BCLA. The BCLA Medal is presented at the biennial BCLA Clinical Research Conference.
