European Cataract and Refractive Surgery meeting

Home » News » European Cataract and Refractive Surgery meeting

The annual meeting of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons met in Amsterdam this year in October 2013. It was very well attended and Mr. Kersey took the opportunity to see what new potential techniques were being proposed for the treatment of long and short-sightedness. There were symposia on both of these topics which demonstrated how reliable both laser and refractive lens techniques are in the correction of both of these conditions. There were many opportunities to network with other refractive surgeons from both around the UK and Europe. New techniques are also being developed for the treatment of Presbyopia (the need for reading glasses).  Presently, use of multifocal lenses and blended vision remain the preferred techniques for most surgeons in both the UK and western Europe.
