Optometrists, orthoptists and dispensing opticians who prescribe coloured lenses are invited to join the Society for Coloured Lens Prescribers, a society to promote public awareness of evidence-based practice. The society has a code of conduct to which prescribers are invited to subscribe. The Society has identified certain investigations that are necessary before prescription of coloured lenses. Individual membership is available to those professionals who are able to conduct these prerequisite investigations. Team membership is available for prescribers who practice within a team in which the prerequisite investigations are conducted by members of their team.

The first conference of the society was held at the Institute of Optometry in London on Wednesday 26th September 2007. Some of the presentations are available and can be used as CET for the Society.
