BCLA awards new Fellowships for 2008

Eighteen contact lens professionals from the UK and overseas have become the latest Fellows of the British Contact Lens Association. The 2008 Fellowships were awarded at a ceremony held at the BCLA Clinical Conference in Birmingham on May 31st.

Introduced in 2006 as a mark of esteem in the field of contact lenses and anterior eye, BCLA Fellowship allows members of all disciplines – optometric, dispensing, technical and medical – to use the letters FBCLA after their names. Applications are invited by March 1st each year and Viva Voce assessments take place at the annual conference.

This year, for the first time, BCLA Fellows were invited to a special reception held prior to the conference Gala Dinner. Fellows also receive a yearly certificate to display in their place of work.

A total of 86 BCLA Fellowships have now been awarded to professionals from 12 countries. More than half are based in the UK but Fellows come from as far afield as India, China and Australia, as well as from continental Europe.

Keith was awarded the FBCLA following a submission to committee of five difficult and unusual case histories including fitting a post LASIK patient with post surgical ectasia (a bulging of the corneal tissue in the operated area), fitting a cornea that was badly scarred due to a viral infection and thereby literally giving sight back, a tricky Gas Permeable Lens fitting to a high prescription, improving the comfort for a patient with Keratoconus and fitting a patient with astigmatism. At the annual conference in May 2008 Keith sat and passed his Viva Voce examination by Keith Cavaye, an ABDO examiner and Professor Roger Buckley, formerly the Director of the country’s premier contact lens service at Moorfields Eye Hospital.

'It is recognition' Keith is quoted as saying 'of the level at which my practice operates in the Contact Lens field.'

'It will also give our patients added confidence in our abilities and in the advice we give, helping to maintain our status as Contact Lens Specialists.'
