At this year’s annual AUSCRS conference, which was held virtually on 23th October and attended by over 180 eye surgeons and support staff, the theme was “AUSCRS Code to Success – What’s new in the virtual world?”.

Dr Wolfe chaired one of the sessions titled “What’s New – Perfect Predictions – Devices and Planning” and presented on the topic of “Measuring in Microns – OCT in cataract surgery”.  Dr Wolfe discussed new technology called Ray Tracing, that, in a new way, calculates the best intraocular lens for cataract and lens surgery.

Founded by Prof Graham Barrett and Dr Rick Wolfe, The Australasian Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (AUSCRS) was formed in 1995. It is a society dedicated to the specific interests of cataract and refractive surgery and offers a unique forum for discussion and learning for both surgeons and their support staff.  AUSCRS is affiliated with the International Society of Refractive Surgery (ISRS) and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS), the Asian Pacific Association of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons (APACRS)  as well as other peer societies around the world.   In Australia, RANZCO is also affiliated with AUSCRS.

AUSCRS continues to grow as a society with its core aim of being a committed, special-interest group of ophthalmologists interested in education and dissemination of knowledge, new techniques and exploring the boundaries of the specialty.

At Peninsula Eye Centre, we are proud to be at the forefront of new technology and advances in eye surgery, both internationally and in Australia, to provide our patients with the highest standards available.
