Dry Eye: Enhance your toolkit

Mike Hale collates useful resources, qualifications and events relevant to dry eye

The British Contact Lens Association offers a formal qualification in the disease with its Dry Eye Management Certificate, which is available to member optometrists and contact lens opticians upon completion of the associated course. The structure of the course is designed to provide expert knowledge in three main areas: dry eye, ocular surface health (OSH), and contact lens retention. Five online modules, including a compulsory MCQ element, and attendance to a relevant dry eye or OSH workshop/peer review must be passed in order to progress to the final examination stage. It is expected that the course is completed within 12 months from the date of enrolment. A BCLA certificate will be issued on successful completion of the course.
