In this webinar, attendees will learn from expert surgeons about basic preoperative diagnostic tools needed for cataract surgery. This will include how to evaluate varying corneal topographers and biometers. In addition, case studies will show examples of preoperative diagnostic evaluation in patients with compromised corneas and post-refractive eyes. Case presentations will also discuss preoperative diagnosis of astigmatism to aid in the use of toric IOLs.
