UKISCRS and The Ukraine

UKISCRS pay our respects to the disaster in the Ukraine. UKISCRS, along with every other organisation, deplores the Russian Federation's war in Ukraine. UKISCRS is resolute in its desire to help our colleagues and their patients in the Ukraine. As a Charity, and Educational Ophthalmic Society, the UKISCRS Council have unanimously decided to donate £5000 towards the ESCRS restricted fund to support Ophthalmology in Ukraine and our Ukrainian colleagues. Our thoughts are very much with them and we extend our respect and admiration for continuing to carry out their vital work within a population that now needs them more than ever. We all hope for a peaceful solution in the very near future.

We are so pleased to return to enabling in-person education

It has been joyful to see our colleagues, friends and peers face-to-face after such a long time away. To educate, and be educated, in a scientific environment along with our specialist industry partners who are able to display & demonstrate changes to medical devices, pharma and R&D.
