We are excited to announce that we are holding a third global Virtual Conference themed ‘Education and Practice: All CLEAR’ on Saturday 23 October from 12 noon until 3pm UK time (BST). In March 2021, the British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) released the Contact Lens Evidence-based Academic Reports (CLEAR) to provide the latest research information across a wide range of contact lens-related topics for eye care professional and educators. This report features 11 papers written by 102 authors from 16 countries.
