About BSRS

BSRS conference programmes

The BSRS was established in 1993 under the initial name of the BEKLS (British Excimer Laser and Keratorefractive Laser Society).

It provided ophthalmologists, optometrists and other allied health professionals a forum to discuss information on the latest advances in treatment and technology.

The 90s saw rapid advancements in treatments and technologies and as a result members were balloted to expand the scope of the society.

In 1998 the British Society For Refractive Surgery was formed to take the place of the BEKLS , giving members an open forum to discuss all aspects of refractive surgery.
