Welcome to another edition of CEDARS/ASPENS Debates. CEDARS/ASPENS is a joint society of cornea, cataract and refractive surgery specialists, here to discuss some of the latest hot topics in ophthalmology.

As our cataract surgery precision continues to improve, patient expectations continue to escalate. There are now many new technologies available to aid in our cataract testing to help optimize outcomes, but interpretation of the results from these devices can be overwhelming to surgeons. This month, Karolinne Maia Rocha, MD, PhD, and Jonathan D. Solomon, MD, two leading experts in these technologies, discuss how they use these devices for cataract surgery. We understand that most surgeons do not have access to all of these devices, but this column should help explain the benefits of each. We hope you enjoy the discussion.
