EYEWITNESS TO HIGH-TECH ADVANCES Robert S. Bailey, Jr., MD, the director of cataract surgery at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, Pa., saw plenty of exciting new products at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) Annual Meeting.
When Outpatient Surgery Magazine invited me to walk the exhibit hall at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) Annual Meeting in San Diego, Calif., in search of the latest product advances for better surgical outcomes, I gladly accepted. Every year, I enjoy attending ASCRS to catch a glimpse of the state-of-the-art in our industry and, just as importantly, what's to come. Cataract procedures are the most common surgeries in America. While the vast majority of these surgeries are executed successfully, that certainly doesn't mean we can't improve the vision, outcomes and quality of life for our patients. Here are my impressions of some of the many products that stood out on my tour of the floor and can help your eye surgeons do just that. OSM
