Paper presentations: Specialty Lenses

Sunday 15 March 16:30 - 17:30

After the great success at the NCC 2016 & 2018, the NCC continues its scientific collaboration with the BCLA. Dr. Carolina Kunnen from the NCC organization together with Professor James Wolffsohn of Aston University and the BCLA’s academic team hosted the NCC/BCLA abstract submissions program. The scientific track, parallel to the general education tracks at NCC ‘Beyond 2020’, is designed to maintain the high reputation developed by the BCLA for showcasing world class clinically relevant research, nurturing new researchers and young academics to present at this level. All abstracts presented during the NCC ‘Beyond 2020’ meeting will continue to be published in Contact Lens and Anterior Eye (CLAE).
