ESCRS History

The European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons evolved from the European Intraocular Implant Club which was established in 1981. The Society is administered by the ESCRS Board, a Board of Ophthalmologists elected by its members.

The ESCRS staff based in London, UK, are responsible for the organisation of the Society's day-to-day activities.
