    Refractive Mgmt/Intervention

    In this video presentation from the 2013 Refractive Subspecialty Day, Deepinder Dhaliwal cites the Bascom Palmer study of 311 routine cataract surgeries performed by experienced femtosecond surgeons as ample evidence of how total case time is increased by the femtosecond phase and concludes with a dramatic side-by-side cost comparison clearly demonstrating how drastically more expensive femto is compared to phaco.
