As a membership organisation, BCLA provides a wide range of benefits to help members at all stages of their educational and professional career access a range of high-quality resources. We provide members with a continual stream of relevant information as well as the opportunity to communicate with others involved with contact lenses and ocular surface, whatever their role. Through the process of knowledge sharing, education and networking, BCLA brings expertise from the world of academia and research into the world of the Eye Health Professionals, for the benefit of their patients. 

BCLA prides itself on supporting and developing its members professionally and educationally, both in the UK and Internationally. BCLA organises a number of events throughout the year – from the prestigious bi-annual Clinical Conference and Exhibition and BCLA UK Conference and Exhibition to the popular Contact Lens Fitting Skills day. We also run hands-on CET workshops, and scientific evening meetings have recently become available as online webinars, making the BCLA more accessible for its members.

We are very excited to announce the dates for some of our forthcoming events*. Get the dates in your diary, so you don't miss out!
