Final call to register: 4th Virtual Conference

Final call to register for our Virtual Conference taking place this Saturday

There is still time for IACLE members to register for our fourth global Virtual Conference themed ‘Make students practice ready’, taking place this Saturday 14 May from 12 noon – 3 pm UK time (BST). In contact lenses, classroom teaching has an essential role to play. However, dealing with patients in a clinical setup poses different challenges. Hence, the focus of IACLE’s fourth Virtual Conference will bridge the gap between academic teaching and contact lens practice requirements. 

Register here – IACLE Members

The conference will be chaired by IACLE Treasurer / Secretary Dr Etty Bitton and introduced by IACLE President Professor Philip Morgan
