OSN Premier Surgeon 300 Innovators in Refractive Cataract Surgery

OSN Premier Surgeon 300 Innovators in Refractive Cataract Surgery

On behalf of SLACK Incorporated, publisher of Ocular Surgery News, we would like to congratulate members of OSN's Premier Surgeon 300.

What is the Premier Surgeon 300? Simply stated, the Premier Surgeon 300 is a list of premium refractive cataract surgeons the editors and publisher have identified as leading innovators in the field of refractive cataract surgery. These surgeons work to educate their colleagues, innovate by developing novel technologies and techniques to advance the premium practice or perform a high volume of premium refractive cataract surgery.

The editors and publisher used no magic formula or algorithm to develop the Premier Surgeon 300 list. Rather, we went with our collected knowledge and experience with these individuals. Admittedly, we know we missed other Premier Surgeons, but overall, we believe it is a good list. We plan to use this list as a way to encourage discussion. Do you want to join the discussion? If so, please reach out to us and share your ideas. Feel free to point out if you believe you or a colleague belongs on the list.

We intend the Premier Surgeon 300 to be a tool for kick-starting conversations and evolving the field of premium refractive cataract surgery. In future issues, we will share with you results of the surveys we conduct, video perspectives we gather and Round Table discussions we conduct with Premier Surgeon 300 members.

We look forward to your feedback. Contact us at ophthalmology@healio.com.
