Program Highlights


Covering the most relevant topics and conducted by some of the world’s leading surgeons. Expect the hottest topics in ophthalmic surgery today such as Mastering Toric IOLs, Mastering IOL Fixation, Mastering Biometry, Mastering Refractive Surgery Complications, and more.

APACRS Lim Lecture

The APACRS LIM Lecture is the highest award of the society. Since 1991, outstanding ophthalmologists who have made extraordinary contributions to the development of cataract and refractive surgery have been invited to deliver this lecture at the annual meeting of the APACRS. Prof Yao Ke will be delivering the 2022 APACRS LIM Lecture titled Cataract in China: My Cataract Surgery Journey from Couching to FLACS.

APACRS Film Festival

The APACRS Film Festival is both entertaining and educational, creatively displaying new innovations and breakthroughs in ophthalmic surgery. Not to be missed!

Combined Symposium of Cataract & Refractive Surgery (CSCRS) - A joint symposium of the APACRS, ASCRS & ESCRS

ZEN – A balance of quality and depth of focus
The current IOL landscape is populated by monofocal, monofocal plus, EDOF, and trifocal lens implants. This gives us many more choices than before but at the same time has made our decision making much more complicated. Join us for this session which considers correcting presbyopia using these lenses as they are or in monovision/mix and match.


Exciting symposia covering cutting edge IOL innovations, the latest surgical techniques, and the management of challenging cataract cases and complications.

– Top Cataract Surgery Tips

Some of the most renowned cataract surgeons each offer a practical cataract surgery tip that surgeons can use immediately on their next visit to the operating theater.

Online registration is now closed to facilitate preparations for the in-person meeting.

Onsite registration will commence at 15:00hrs on Friday, 10 June 2022 at Foyer of Hall B2, Coex, Seoul.
