Bausch and Lomb Premium Cataract Intraocular Lenses to Be Featured

SAN FRANCISCO, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Over 1,000 cataract surgeons will attend a live surgery and symposium at a San Francisco hotel Friday night. They will observe two surgical procedures conducted by Dr. Jeffrey Whitman broadcast live from Key Whitman Eye Center in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Whitman will implant a Crystalens, the only FDA approved accommodating Intraocular lens (IOL) in one patient and an Akreos AO (Advanced Optics) lens in another patient. Surgeons will be able to observe and discuss the surgery during the Friday evening event.

"I'm honored to be sharing this experience with the surgeons who will be watching live in San Francisco. It promises to be an excellent experience for all of us. This opportunity to observe and discuss a surgery benefits both surgeons and our cataract and presybopic patients," said Dr. Jeffrey Whitman.

The live surgery and symposium - entitled "Premium Solutions for Cataract Surgery - will be held at the Intercontinental Hotel in San Francisco on Friday night (April 3). It is being sponsored by Bausch and Lomb. The American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) Annual Meeting is being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco and has attracted thousands of surgeons to the Bay Area.

"Bausch and Lomb is pleased to be the sponsor for the live surgery and symposium. There are many premium solutions available to cataract surgeons. Events like these that let surgeons share new surgical techniques and ideas with each other benefit all of us in the industry, particularly the patient," said Michael Judy, Chief Marketing Officer for Bausch & Lomb Surgical.

There are 3 million cataract surgeries every year. A cataract is a clouding on the normally clear lens in your eye. When it forms, the natural lens in the patient's eye is replaced by an intraocular lens. Adv
