Statement Details

The American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) has released an official position statement opposing directives that restrict two well-established pre-surgical ophthalmic practices: the use of diluted povidone-iodine solution for topical infection prophylaxis and the use of multidose topical eye drops on multiple patients. The position statement, developed by the ASCRS Cataract Clinical Committee, comes in the wake of some surgery centers being compelled to cease certain long accepted topical treatments for preoperative patients.
