Exciting Plans for 2017! CLSA is excited to announce our plans to increase the educational offerings in 2017. We will be expanding our on-line courses by making comprehensive on-line education available to not only our members, but to a network of eye care professionals across Ophthalmology, Optometry, and Opticianry. In addition, we are updating all of our educational materials and textbooks, and are in the planning phase of holding up to five meetings in 2017. The first one will be a Hands-on Clinical Workshop in Springfield, VA (Washington DC area), on Saturday, April 22, 2017. CLSA will collaborate with ABO-NCLE, NAO, and OAA for OptiCon 2017 by offering a comprehensive basic and advanced contact lens educational track. OptiCon 2017 will be held at the Contemporary Resort in Lake Buena Vista, FL, October 6-8, 2017 (The CLSA Annual Business Meeting of its Members will be held during OptiCon). CLSA is also planning three regional meetings in Dallas, Boston, and New Orleans. These one day meetings are limited to 50 attendees to create a highly interactive learning environment on critical contact lens topics. Visit www.clsa.info as more details become available. EYEQ: The anatomy of this rigid gas permeable lens shows the overall lens diameter (OAD) with the longer line, and the optical zone (OZ) with the shorter line. The OAD includes the optic zone and the peripheral curve system, while the OZ is the diameter of the base curve and the power zone of the lens. EyeNews 11 CLSA EyeWitness Winter 2017 CLSA News Going International: CLSA is expanding our membership internationally! The new International Membership is for those that reside outside of the United States of America or Canada, who possess a minimum of two years contact lens experience, and/or two years education in the field of ophthalmics. The new membership will be $95 US for 12 months. A digital edition of the EyeWitness Journal will be included. Our first marketing effort will be in China, but we hope to attract members from all over the world. If you have friends from other countries, or participate in other international networks, please share this opportunity with them. Growing through Group Membership: The New Group Membership is ideal for some larger employers that have more than three staff members interested in being CLSA Members. A Group Membership will be $395 (a savings of over 25%) for up to four members and $80 for each additional member over four. The Employer will receive a subscription to EyeWitness Journal, and each group member will receive the digital subscription to EyeWitness Journal. Group Memberships may be purchased by employers with multiple locations.
