ASCRS gratefully acknowledges the unrestricted educational grants received in support of this program from Johnson & Johnson Vision, QuidelOrtho, and Trukera Medical.


This activity is designed to change comprehension and application of the ASCRS Preoperative OSD Algorithm, developed by the Cornea Clinical Committee. Learners will be able to move through the algorithm step by step with instructional videos discussing the importance of each move. The Cornea Clinical Committee members which initially wrote the algorithm will present different cases for diagnosis in a “choose your own journey” version of the algorithm. Learners will interact with this diagnostic tool in a way that has not been available previously and have their comprehension tested at various points.

Credits: By completing this activity you will earn 0.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Duration: 45 minutes
