Professor Rudy Nuijts, Professor Mats Lundstrӧm, Professor James Wolffsohn, Professor Michael Amon, Mr Allon Barsam and Dr Tiago Ferreira made up the panel of presenters for the Symposium ‘Refractive Surprise; The Big Taboo’ — an education program sponsored by Rayner (in conjunction with Eurotimes) at the XXXIII Congress of ESCRS, 5-8 September in Barcelona.

Rayner is now pleased to announce that highlights from the symposium are now available in a supplement format.

Within the Supplement, each of these esteemed experts discuss the following key topics related to the taboo topic of refractive surprise:

  • Mats Lundstrӧm MD, PhD: Despite Advances, ‘Refractive Surprise’ Still Lurks. EUREQUO analysis identifies risk factors for refractive outcome errors.
  • James Wolffsohn PhD: The Data-Reality Gap. VA predictions still complicated by lens position, subjective refraction.
  • Allon Barsam MA, FRCOphth: Getting to 20/Happy. Fixing even a small refractive surprise can greatly improve patients’ lives.
  • Michael Amon MD: Multifocal Rescue. Sulcoflex corrects refractive surprise after YAG without vitreous loss.
  • Tiago Bravo Ferreira MDKeratoconus Rescue. Sulcoflex improves UCDVA from 20/400 to 20/50 in stable cornea.
  • The session was introduced and moderated by Prof. Rudy Nuijts, who highlighted that refractive surprise is a serious challenge in cataract and refractive surgery and requires further thought for management.


The supplement is useful not only for surgeons who were unable to attend the event but also serves as a helpful tool to re-cap the content for attending surgeons.
