IACLE President Professor Philip Morgan commented, ‘At IACLE, our goal is to provide resources, information and other support to our members to help them be the best contact lens educators possible. The years ahead are likely to bring unprecedented changes to the teaching environment, in addition to evolutions and revolutions in contact lens products. IACLE will continue to work with our staff, sponsors, and members to respond to these changes, and to support our contact lens educator community.
