Welcome to CEDARS-ASPENS Debates, a monthly feature in Ocular Surgery News.
CEDARS (Cornea, External Disease, and Refractive Surgery Society) and ASPENS (American Society of Progressive Enterprising Surgeons) is a joint society of cornea, cataract and refractive surgery specialists, here to discuss some of the latest hot topics in ophthalmology.
Intraoperative aberrometry measurements have become much more utilized during cataract surgery in recent years for obvious reasons. Even when surgeons have access to this technology, there is still no consensus as to how to interpret the data. While many surgeons put all of their trust in these measurements, others may feel that the preoperative calculations are more reliable. This month, Dr. Tom Boland and I discuss the merits and pitfalls of using intraoperative aberrometry with routine cataract surgery. We hope you enjoy the discussion.
