Practice styles and preferences of ASCRS members--2003 survey

J Cataract Refract Surg. 2004 Apr;30(4):892-900. doi: 10.1016/j.jcrs.2004.02.064.


A survey of the members of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) with a United States ZIP code was performed in July 2003. Approximately 15.5% (985) of the 6350 questionnaires were returned for analysis. Three main profile questions were used in the cross-tabulation: age of the respondent, geographic location, and volume of cataract surgery per month. The refractive surgical questions were cross-tabulated for the volume of laser in situ keratomileusis. Results of the survey were compared with those in previous surveys of ASCRS members.
