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 2019 meeting will be at The Hilton Grosvenor, Glasgow on Monday 20th May.

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. 

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 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 2019 annual meeting returns to Hinckley Island Hotel on Wednesday 16th, Thursday 17th and Friday 18th October.
