The Numbers Are In: Surgeons Across the Country Believe Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery Is the Future!

In a clinical survey conducted by ASCRS, a stunning 94 percent of surgeons plan to offer laser-assisted cataract surgery at some capacity in the next ten years.

Despite the high volume of interested surgeons, however, few are currently offering the surgery. Only 8 percent of cataract patients receive laser-assisted cataract surgery, and more than half of young surgeons have no experience performing the procedure.

Why don’t these numbers match up? Many surgeons worry about the high price of the femtosecond laser and its associated maintenance. Others believe that bringing the procedure to their OR will cost too much time.
