Risk Management

Cataract: Patient Information Sheet

The material in Cataract Surgery Patient Information is designed to complement information provided in the Cataract Surgery brochure available from the American Academy of Ophthalmology (https://store.aao.org/cataract-surgery-brochure.html). It mainly addresses the risks and benefits of IOLs.  Ask your staff to provide the AAO brochure and this information sheet to patients before your informed consent discussion.  Document what materials were given to the patient.
