Time to register for tickets and get the date in your diary: next month, Allon Barsam will be imparting the latest knowledge about refractive error correction at the UK’s largest optical event. Detailing the most advanced surgical options for treating refractive error in 2017, Allon’s lecture will take place at ExCel London on 6 February and is a must-see seminar for anyone working in the field.
Refractive error correction has come a long way since patients were restricted to a choice of glasses or contact lenses. Today’s options for refractive eye surgery utilise the most advanced equipment including state of the art laser technology which, combined with a high level of surgical skill, allows for unprecedented precision and an ultra-safe procedure.
Allon’s talk on refractive surgery will include multimedia video and photographic content to illustrate the very latest techniques. It will give the audience an insight into the indications for each type of surgery and a good understanding of the risks, benefits and main characteristics of each option. Attendees will come away with knowledge of the latest cutting edge refractive error correction techniques in 2017.

If you would like to know more about some of the cutting edge options open to patients with refractive error conditions, our website has overviews of the main procedures.
Read more about some of the latest treatment options for refractive error correction here:
- Laser eye surgery. This bladeless eye surgery encompasses a number of different treatment options including LASIK and Z-LASIK (using the world’s fastest Zeimer femtosecond laser technology).
- Implantable contact lenses. Where laser eye surgery is not suitable, patients who require refractive error correction can now opt for contact lens implants. Phakic IOLs (intraocular lenses) are a permanent but reversible vision correction solution. The procedure is pain-free and quick to perform.
- Refractive lens exchange (also known as PreLex or clear lens extraction). This is an option open to patients for whom neither of the above procedures are indicated. It can be used to correct vision in conditions causing refractive error including myopia, hyperopia and presbyopia.
