Organized in 2002 and chartered in 2004, the Optometric Corneal, Cataract and Refractive Society is optometry’s voice in the field of refractive surgery, comanagement and other technologies designed to alter the refractive status of the human eye. Our mission is to bring together optometrists and researchers with an interest in refractive technologies, providing a forum for education and interaction.

We host an annual symposium to share our expertise and enthusiasm for all things refractive. OCCRS gives us a forum for discussion and allows us to present ourselves as the key players in supporting patients interested in altering their refractive status. Our members can then act as a resource for our colleagues who are not directly involved in refractive surgical care, but whose patients seek such care. We support collaborative care with surgeons for the benefit of our patients.

Our Mission

To advance the art and science of refractive  technology and the knowledge and skills of optometrists participating in refractive technology as well as provide clinical and practice management education to optometrists through various forms of communication and forums.

Become a member  Annual membership includes four free COPE webinars per year, access to the closed facebook and mailing groups, and discounts for our meetings.
