Keith Meek receives the Pearce Medal
30 October 2013
Keith Meek became the first non-Ophthalmologist to be awarded the prestigious Pearce medal from the United Kingdom and Ireland Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.
It was awarded to Keith for his "considerable contribution to Ophthalmology".
The award (seen being presented by Mrs Judith Pearce) is named after the late John Pearce who was the first Ophthalmic surgeon seriously to review the idea of posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation and who went on to invent the Pearce tripod lens.
