Cataract Surgery in a Practice Setting?


In its October 2015 issue, The Ophthalmic ASC explores the pros and cons of cataract surgery in an office setting with important input from from medical societies, ASC owners, surgeons, and ophthalmologists. A CMS request for information about non-facility cataract surgery earlier this year triggered an avalanche of responses. And while CMS deferred action on payment for in-office cataract surgery in 2016, the topic is still vital. Read what OOSS, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS), the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), and others have to say about cataract surgery in a practice setting with regard to patient safety, efficacy, convenience, and quality control.

The magazine also shares advice from the experts on avoiding complications in the ASC and attracting more premium lens patients to a practice. These articles and more are available now in the October 2015 issue of The Ophthalmic ASC in print and online: Click Here.
