Research Update

Compiled by the IACLE education team and supported by the British Contact Lens Association, Research Update is a exclusive resource available to IACLE and BCLA members to support your teaching and practice.

The presence of numerous journals in the optometric field and lack of access makes it difficult for many educators to keep pace with published research. Hence IACLE and BCLA have taken the step of providing a regular, monthly summary of important and interesting contact lens-related research papers published in the literature for your quick reference.
