Cut the Carbon: Ophthalmology is Going Greener

What are the biggest contributors to carbon emissions in anterior segment practice? And what can be done?

In this mini-documentary, we focus on a major ophthalmic culprit: procurement. 

Further, while it’s no secret that healthcare is a major contributor to carbon emissions, in ophthalmology, cataract surgery produces the lionshare. But it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way. 

As we have celebrated Earth Day during ASCRS 2022, we hope our video helps answer some serious sustainable questions — and helps raise awareness of the avenues we can take to make ophthalmic practice not only human-friendly, but Earth-friendly.
