In August 2014, the Japanese Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (JSCRS) implemented a new organizational structure. While retaining JSCRS’ original basic principle of “operating a society for our members with member services as our top priority,” in our new capacity as a Public Interest Corporation, we intend to make widespread contributions to the general public by “developing research, education, and medical care related to cataract and refractive surgery.”
In terms of member services, we plan to improve our annual meetings and summer and winter seminars, as well as the surgical education videos available on our website and reviews of our annual meetings—two aspects that we have been focusing on. We will provide our members with useful, up-to-date information through our journal “IOL & RS” and our email newsletter. Furthermore, we recently established a Questionnaire Working Group, which, in addition to conducting member surveys on annual developments in the field of surgery, will continue to collect, analyze, and report on information necessary for the development of medical care and surgery.
For the general public, in addition to providing information on cataract surgery, we will renew our website to ensure that JSCRS disseminates the most reliable information in Japan on refractive surgery, an area in which information related to safety has been particularly inconsistent.
To achieve these objectives, we need the cooperation of both our ophthalmologist members and enterprises involved in supporting cataract and refractive surgery. Recently, we have established a corporate membership system and will proceed with various plans with the aim of evolving into an organization that contributes to society through the joint efforts of ophthalmologists and enterprises.
As the president of JSCRS, I will endeavor to achieve the above vision while working together with the new Board of Directors. We look forward to your continued support in the future.
