To find out more about the UKISCRS and what is happening in the fast-paced world of anterior segment cataract & refractive surgery, check back often for news from the Society. During COVID-19 our meetings may be affected and we will keep you informed as to any changes. We are running educational webinars on the first Thursday evening of each month (except May when it is on Monday 24th); 6.30 - 7.30pm and we are producing a President's newsletter on a monthly basis. 

Please keep safe and do not hesitate to contact us should we be able to offer help and advice during this global pandemic.


We hold two main annual meetings throughout the year:

The Annual Congress

The three-day annual congress is a celebration of all innovations, improvements, research and results. We hold a Plenary symposium designed by the President and co-chaired by a Past President. We have a cataract and refractive session. We offer a young ophthalmologist session designed and delivered by young ophthalomogists either in a senior trainee post/within early years of a consultant post and normally headed up by one of the ophthalmic greats.

We have a free paper session, avideo prize and expert video panel session and our coveted awards/medal lectures. Biennial medal lectures include eponymous lectures: The Choyce Medal Lecture & The Pearce Medal Lecutres, in innovation and cataract greatness. The research medal lecture has most recently been provided by Rayner IOLs and is entitled the Rayner Medal Lecture. We have in recent years also introduced The Lifetime Achievement Awards. This years innovations bring 'Breakfast with the Experts' and 'Room 101'!

The 2021 Congress returns to Hinckley Island Hotel on Wednesday 10th, Thursday 11th and Friday 12th November. 

The Cornea and Cataract Day

This is a sub-specialist meeting that is a one-day event. The day has historically preceeded the annual meeting of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth). The 2021 meeting has been rescheduled, due to COVID-19, to July 2021 in Birmingham.

The programme offers a morning cornea session with interactive and didactic learning and an afternoon cataract session. The day is really well attended and holds an exclusive and innovative industry trade exhibition supported by anterior segment industry specialists.
