British Emergency Eye Care Society

Welcome to BEECS

The Society was founded in 2013 with the aim of bringing together practitioners in the United Kingdom who provide acute ophthalmology services within their institutions.

We run an annual scientific meeting open to all health care professionals involved in emergency eye care.
