News & Events


To find out more about the UKISCRS and what is happening in the fast-paced world of anterior segment cataract & refractive surgery, please visit our webiste for update information on our upcoming meeting and congress.

We hold two main annual meetings throughout the year:

The 2023 Annual Congress

The three-day annual congress was a celebration of all innovations, improvements, research and results. We held a Plenary symposium designed by the President and co-chaired by a Past President. We had a cataract and refractive session. We offered 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 had a free paper session, a video prize and expert video panel session and our coveted awards/medal lectures. Our biennial medal lecture included the eponymous & inaugural Ridley Eye Foundation award lecture. We also had 2 Lifetime Achievement Award lectures.

The 2023 Congress returned to London after a 7-year break to the Leonardo Royal City Hotel on Wednesday 1st - Friday 3rd 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) however due to the RCophth meeting being held in Belfast in 2024 we are visiting a new city in the UKISCRS portfolio, Bristol.

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. 

Monday 4th March 2024, The Bristol Hotel, Bristol.
