IRIS Registry Snapshot: Cataract Surgery
Analyzing statistically de-identified electronic health record data from the Academy’s IRIS Registry, Verana Health assessed the number of cataract surgeries in the United States from 2016 through 2019.
The study included 7,548,726 total eyes from 4,537,122 unique patients. The number of normal (purple) and complex (yellow) cataract surgeries are shown in the pie chart. During the study period, trends in rates of normal versus complex cataract surgery remained stable year over year. The average rate of complex cataract surgery was 7.4% (range, 7.3%-7.6%).
Note: The Academy has partnered with Verana Health to curate and analyze IRIS Registry data.
