Office-based surgery (OBS) is any surgical or invasive procedure, utilizing minimal to moderate anesthetics, performed by a licensed physician in his or her office. The trend in cataract surgery is shifting to OBS because it seamlessly integrates clinic and surgery in one location, providing both the next level of safety and quality of care experience.

Gain more control of surgery from start to finish, including your choice of equipment and supplies. Work with your own surgical staff who you know and trust. And because you can schedule clinic and surgery on the same day, you have the flexibility to see more patients during the day and to enjoy greater work-life balance.
Unlike surgeries performed in an ASC, with an OBS you can decide the appropriate level of anesthesia for each patient and procedure. Most OBS cases are done under Class A level anesthesia and don’t require additional patient monitoring or staff. Less anesthesia reduces patient anxiety and costs per case.
An iOR OBS suite is designed to ensure the highest level of comfort and safety, resulting in a higher level of patient satisfaction. Your patients will appreciate interacting with staff they know in an office they’re familiar with – creating a more relaxed, personalized, premium surgical experience. And with clinic and surgery schedules combined, it will be easier and more convenient for patients to schedule surgery.
