ShehzadContact lens educators have been urged to become members of IACLE prior to the organisation’s next fellowship exam in November 2015.

Held every two years, the exam allows fellows to use the affix FIACLE.

IACLE president Dr Shehzad Naroo said: ‘Joining now offers the best route for educators to enjoy a full year of membership benefits, prepare for the Fellowship exam and then apply to add FIACLE after their names. This is a prestigious and recognised award that’s specific to contact lens education. I’d encourage all colleagues in teaching institutions around the world to take part.’

Educator membership is open to all those involved in contact lens education at a recognised institution, and associate membership to individuals and industry representatives contributing to education and active in IACLE.
