Our Mission and Vision

The European Refractive Surgery Council is made up of industry representatives and medical professionals who work together to ensure that anyone considering refractive surgery can make the decisions that are right for them – decisions which are based on the most accurate information available.

ERSC provides a forum for the discussion of all issues related to refractive surgery in Europe. Our activities include education, research and community outreach.

As well as providing information to the public and prospective patients, the ERSC is also committed to advancing innovation and promoting best practice within the refractive surgery industry.

The ERSC is a source of eye care guidance, cultivating a sector-wide commitment to best practice. It provides a united, transparent and evidence-based voice for refractive surgery, influencing service development and new care models for the benefit of patients and the public.
