UKISCRS...your national society.

UKISCRS exists to promote education and research in the field of cataract and refractive surgery and to advance and promote the study and practice of ophthalmology and research and the dissemination of the useful results thereof. We aim to innovate, integrate and interact with all our members and wider ophthalmic community.

With this objective at the forefront of the Society aims, the council of UKISCRS (formed of our Trustees, Officers and elected council members) are excited to present the details for our next three meetings.


Wednesday 1st - Friday 3rd November
The 47th Annual Congress

Sessions included 'The future provision of cataract surgery in the UK', 'Wobbly lenses, aphakia & lens fixation' & the new 'Innovations In Industry' plus three very special 'Award' lectures.

The 'Lifetime Achievement Awards' were presented by Mr. Paul Rosen on Thursday 02/11/23 and Professor Dan Reinstein on Friday 03/11/23.

The inaugural 'Ridley Award' lecture was presented by Prof. John Marshall.

The Young Ophthalmologist Programme presented a Dry Lab, supported by Thea and a didactic programme supported by BVI. The Allied Professions Programme with 'hand's on learning' was a great feature with Scope Eyecare supporting the best poster prize.
