ASCRS / ESCRS Courses.

ASCRS 2024

This year ASCRS celebrated it's 50 year Anniversary in Boston and honored a few of the people who helped make it what it is today. One of those people is our very own Dr. Kenneth Hoffer, who started the organization in 1974. During our conference, he was able to give us his story of how ASCRS was started.

On Sunday April 7th, the IOL Power organized its course at the annual meeting of the ASCRS in Boston. The title was “IOL Power Club Course: Optimized IOL Power Selection”. Dr. Hoffer introduced the course and gave an overview of currently available IOL formulas for unoperated eyes. Dr. Shammas presented un update on optical biometers and Dr. Olsen provided the best evidence for calculation in short and long eyes. Dr. Ribeiro discussed the issue of IOL power calculation in post-LASIK eyes and Dr. Savini in toric eyes; finally Dr. Aramberri presented some unusual cases. As usual, several ophthalmologists attended the course.

The next course of the IPC will be in Barcelona at ESCRS: we are looking forward to seeing you there!

ASCRS 2023

The IPC Executive Committee organized the usual course on IOL power calculation at the 2023 ASCRS meeting in San Diego, CA USA this May.

Updates on IOL formulas, optical biometers, IOL power calculation in short and long eyes, in eyes with previous refractive surgery and in eyes requiring toric IOLs were provided to participants.
