CLAO has completed an exciting redesign on both its web sites (clao.org and ContactLensDocs.com). You may access either site by typing “Contact Lens Doctors” in your favorite search engine, e.g., Google, Bing, etc., or by visiting either URL directly, (e.g., www.clao.org).
One of the major new changes is that some areas within the clao.org site are accessible by members only. To access these member-only areas you will need to click on the login in the upper right hand corner of the site. Two boxes will appear, one requesting a user name and the second box requesting a password.
