Ophthalmology is leading the next evolution in outpatient care:

A Critical Imbalance for the World's Leading Surgical Procedure

Supply-demand conundrum for Cataract surgery

As the demand for cataract surgery rises, the number of providers is decreasing, creating a critical imbalance of supply and demand. This problem is compounded by declining surgical time, as surgery centers prioritize more lucrative procedures. As a result, ophthalmologists are facing myriad challenges:

  • Restricted surgical time
  • Patient backlog 
  • Limited growth potential
  • Lack of control and flexibility

Office-based surgery provides a solution that is safe, convenient, and efficient. 


Fueled by a vision to streamline the surgical experience, iOR Partners is leading the movement to office-based surgery.
