During the course of this session James and Jonathan will review the content of the BCLA CLEAR report, looking in particular at papers likely to impact on the delivery of clinically effective optimal CL care. The joint approach will be in the form of a discussion about the most pertinent points raised in key papers. James, as a highly respected academic and the initiator and lead on CLEAR, will highlight important academic content presented in the papers whereas Jonathan, as a leading Hospital Optometrist with specific clinical experience in the management of medical CLs, will discuss the clinical implications arising from these papers.  CPD has been applied for.
