Cataract/Anterior Segment, Refractive Mgmt/Intervention
In this interview from AAO 2015, Dr. John Hovanesian discusses factors affecting patient satisfaction after premium cataract surgery. Using patient surveys, he found that high patient satisfaction is strongly correlated with residual astigmatism. As little as .5 D of residual astigmatism can result in an unhappy patient. He also discusses the importance of patient selection in refractive cataract surgery.
