Key findings Average annual cataract surgery volume among mem- bers is nearly 450. 25% of ophthalmologists said they perform 600 or more cataract surgeries annually, with more non-U.S. respondents selecting this volume than U.S. (28% compared to 23%, respectively). Highlighting the value of education on phaco essentials and fundamentals, 79% of all respondents said they are either confident or very confident in customizing their phaco settings to optimize standard cataract surgery; non-U.S. respondents are more confident than their U.S. counterparts, 87% vs. 75%, respectively. 78% of respondents said they are confident or very confident with phaco setting customization for more complicated cases as well. In terms of complication rates, 14% of all respondents reported six or more posterior capsule ruptures within the past 12 months. Non-U.S. doctors reported nearly twice the rate of their U.S. counterparts (20% compared to 10%, respectively). More than three-quarters of the doctors (76%) are confident or very confident in performing an anterior vitrectomy. Cataract surgery 3 • 2017 ASCRS Clinical Survey
