The AUSCRS Charter is to support and advance the community of ophthalmic surgeons in the advancement of the art and science of cataract and refractive surgery.
Their annual AUSCRS conference is a vital focal point for the society and has become a regular on the calendars of Australian and New Zealand ophthalmic practices. The meeting provides an opportunity to source up-to-date information on scientific developments within the field of cataract and refractive surgery, as well as the many diverse areas which affect ophthalmic practices.
One aspect overseas guest speakers continually comment about the AUSCRS meetings is the interaction between presenters and delegates. Much of this 'spontaneous informality' has been nurtured by the AUSCRS Committee over the years to provide a professional forum for debate across the many and varied issues in the world of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. The academic program also extends to the very valued Ophthalmic Support Staff with their own highly informative concurrent sessions and an AUSCRS Advanced Trainee Program for ophthalmic fellows and registrars interested in the field of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
