KMSG Awards

The KMSG was founded with the idea of studying, improving and diffusing the refractive surgery techniques created by Professor Jose Ignacio Barraquer (Colombia), one of the main investigators in the Refractive Surgery field.

His investigations about Keratomileusis, settled the bases of the LASIK technique, which is performed with so much success nowadays around the World.

In 1994, during the first International congress of the KMSG an award was presented to Barraquer and the “Jose Ignacio Barraquer AWARD” was established since then, to distinguish an Ophthalmologist for his contribution to the refractive surgery. 

During the award ceremony, the prizewinner presented his magisterial conference "Jose Ignacio Barraquer Lecture".
