Ophthalmology Web Site Links:
American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ASCRS)
This is a good site to find an ophthalmologist in your area. I believe their members tend to be well informed on the latest advances in cataract and refractive surgery.
Duke University Eye Center
Many of the instruments and the technique for vitrectomy (removal of the vitreous) were developed at Duke University where Doctor Karickhoff trained and remains on the Advisory Board. A large Eye Research Institute was added in 2005. Dr. Karickhoff gave the medical lecture for the opening of this Institute.
