Looking beyond the eye during preoperative assessment can optimise the outcomes of cataract surgery in patients with systemic disease with ocular manifestations, said Betty Lorente Bulnes MD FEBO, Spain.
Cataract surgery continues to benefit from ongoing innovation and progress in technology and techniques, according to expert speakers at the symposium Cataract Surgery in the 21st Century, organized by Cataract and Refractive Surgery Section of the Polish Ophthalmological Society.
The ability to think outside the box and apply new approaches to improving diagnostic and therapeutic applications of existing technologies were rewarded by the judging panel in the Best Poster Awards at the ESCRS Winter Meeting Virtual 2021.
