Practice styles and preferences of ASCRS members--1993 survey

J Cataract Refract Surg. 1994 Jul;20(4):459-67. doi: 10.1016/s0886-3350(13)80185-x.


A survey of the practice styles and preferences of the 1993 ASCRS members with a U.S. ZIP code was performed in September 1993. Approximately 42% (1,786) of the 4,292 questionnaires sent out were returned prior to the December cut-off date. Three main profile questions were used to cross-tabulate: the age of the ophthalmologist, the geographic location, and the volume of cataract surgery per month. This report compares the data with previously published surveys of ASCRS members.
