In this webinar, attendees will determine how to diagnose and manage conditions affecting the ocular surface prior to cataract surgery with special consideration for patients being treated for astigmatism and/or presbyopia at the time of refractive cataract surgery. Management of dry eye, blepharitis, EBMD, Salzmann nodules, pterygium and ectasias will be covered. A discussion on irregular astigmatism, including ectatic conditions of the cornea, and the timing of crosslinking in the perioperative period will be reviewed. Defining when a toric lens is appropriate or not appropriate, recognizing how to prepare the ocular surface to obtain proper measurements, and summarizing other conditions affecting refractive cataract surgery will also be discussed.
