More than 1,100 members responded with clinical opinions and practice patterns to help drive the future of ASCRS education As the ASCRS Education Committee chair, I'm pleased to announce the results of the fifth annual ASCRS Clinical Survey, performed in April–May 2017. The results of the survey include the perspectives of more than 1,100 physicians who responded to 118 questions, which were developed and reviewed with the help of physician volun- teers of the ASCRS Clinical Committees and validated by a social science statistician. The survey generated more than 300 measurable data elements. ASCRS members were asked key questions relating to current issues they face on a regular basis. The results were reviewed and interpreted by the ASCRS Clinical Committees and Education Committee. Important trends spotted this year are in areas such as presbyopia correction, astigmatism management, and microinvasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS). The survey also evaluated members' opinions and practices in laser-assisted cataract surgery, inflammation and infection control, corneal refractive surgery, and more. This survey helps shape all forms of education for ASCRS, including that featured at the annual meeting, in web-based seminars, online education, and print media. Participation in these surveys ensures that education is formatted to the needs of our membership coupled with direction from experts in the field. The re- sults of this survey help ASCRS to enhance membership learning and provide members the opportunity to see how they compare with their peers.
