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.

We hold two main annual meetings throughout the year:

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 2017 meeting will be at The Hilton Liverpool on Monday 22nd May.

The programme offers a morning cornea session with interactive and didactic learning - this years session is entitled 'Ocular surface disorders & Infectious keratitis' and is chaired by Professor David O'Brart and Mr. Mayank Nanavaty.

The afternoon cataract session entitled 'Serious Challenges facing Cataract Surgeons' provides a 'pearls' symposium from leading cataract specialists and a lively debate session chaired by Mr. Larry Bejamin and Mr Brian Little. The day is really well attended and holds an exclusive and innovative industry trade exhibition supported by anterior segment industry specialists. 

The Annual Congress

The two-day annual congress is a celebration of all innovations, improvemtns, research and results. We hold a Plenary symposium designed by the President and co-chaired by the 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.

The 2017 annual meeting returns to Hinckley Island Hotel on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th September.
