    Refractive Mgmt/Intervention

    Difficulty of “getting comfortable” at the operating microscope. Beware that the distance from the bottom of the operating table to the microscope eyepieces may exceed the distance from the top of the thighs to the surgeon’s eyes. To make up for the missing height, a shorter surgeon may have to sit at the edge of the stool to allow their thighs to slope downward.
