J Cataract Refract Surg. 1998 Apr;24(4):552-61. doi: 10.1016/s0886-3350(98)80301-5.

Abstract

A survey of the practice styles and preferences of members of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery with a United States ZIP code was performed in September 1997. Approximately 29% (1441) of the 5000 questionnaires mailed were returned by the November cut-off date. Three main profile questions were used to cross-tabulate data: age of the ophthalmologist, geographic location, and volume of cataract surgery per month. Current data were compared with data in previous annual surveys.
