Dr. John Meyer returned from Amsterdam where he presented his findings on Preferred Reading Distance at the annual meeting of the European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS).
The presentation by Dr. Meyer was based on the findings to date of the FDA surgical trial in which he is involved for the ReFocus Group Scleral Spacing Procedure (SSP) to reduce or eliminate the need for reading glasses.
Dr. Meyer, along with one other US surgeon, is the only authorized trainer of other eye surgeons for the SSP procedure. SSP reading glasses surgery is already approved for use in Europe. Dr. Meyer is pleased to help train European ophthalmologists on proper SSP implant techniques.
