A survey of the preferred techniques and choices in cataract surgery of the members of the Danish Ophthalmological Society with address in Denmark was performed in January 1999. Only ophthalmologists performing cataract surgery were asked to return the questionnaire. Ninety-three responses were received by the cut-off day, representing 32,832 cataract operations per year. The data were compared to data from previous surveys in Denmark, and similar data from the US and Japan.
