BCLA President was guest today (8th Feb) on BBC radio show
BCLA President, Dr Catharine Chisholm, was a guest on BBC Radio 4's You & Yours consumer affairs programme today.
Catharine had been invited on as President of the BCLA to talk to host Peter White about contact lens wear and care in the wake of recent media interest.
The programme aired between 12noon and 1pm, and Catharine was expected to be on air at around 12.30pm.

The interest follows last week’s statement issued by the BCLA in response to an article published in The Sun newspaper. Yesterday BCLA Council member and Coventry practitioner, Susan Bowers, was invited onto the Annie Othen Show on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire. She talked about the risks of contact lens infection and Fusarium.
