7th annual ASCRS Clinical Survey closes on May 31

The 2019 ASCRS ASOA Annual Meeting marked the launch of the 7th annual ASCRS Clinical Survey. The 2019 survey builds on the success of prior surveys, in which thousands of ASCRS member ophthalmologists participated.
In early May, ASCRS members had the opportunity to participate in the survey at the Annual Meeting. Those who didn’t get a chance to take the survey at the meeting can go to before it closes on May 31.
While many surveys yield important data, the ASCRS Clinical Survey is unique in that it assesses key clinical opinions and practice patterns of ASCRS members to guide ASCRS’ educational activities.
The survey asks ASCRS members key questions relating to current issues they regularly face. The goal is to obtain opinions and practice patterns from a significant percentage of the membership. The ASCRS Clinical Committees then review and interpret the results and make recommendations for future educational programming.
Many symposia at this year’s meeting incorporated data from prior surveys to develop content. The 2018 survey results were also used as criteria for driving more than 10 different ASCRS/EyeWorld CME Education events at this year’s Annual Meeting. Highlights of past survey results can be found at
The 2019 ASCRS Clinical Survey includes a wide range of contemporary topics, such as management of residual error in presbyopia-correcting IOL patients, assessment and management of dry eye and meibomian gland disease, how to mitigate or eliminate post-cataract surgery inflammation, management trends of glaucoma in conjunction with cataract surgery, and exposure of advanced techniques and technology to young physicians.

How to participate

ASCRS members can complete this survey in 15 minutes. The survey tool will permit members to identify their preferred category of questions (refractive, cataract, etc.) and will include about 60 questions on various topics. Physicians can go to before May 31 to take the survey at their convenience. They can also scan the QR code on this page to go to the website.
By completing the survey, respondents will provide important data to help influence future education.
This fall, a supplement will be published in EyeWorld with a summary of the key findings from the survey. In addition, future presentations and publications will be developed based on the survey data and identified education needs in the coming year.
