This document, which is subject to regular updates, provides best practice evidence informed perspectives for ophthalmologists in Canada and can be viewed as a supplement to the June 3, 2020 COS issued document entitled “Immediately Sequential Bilateral Cataract Surgery (ISBCS) – Key Points”. (Appendix 1).
DISCLAIMER: This document should not be viewed as advocating widespread adoption of ISBCS; however, if individuals or groups are considering this or already engaging in the practice in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, then we hope that the perspectives shared will be helpful. It will be important for those doing ISBCS to follow best practice recommendations so as to optimize outcomes and minimize the risk of complications. It is also important to note that standards of ISBCS and restrictions due to COVID are evolving and all surgeons must stay updated and use clinical acumen and judgement when deciding what is best- care for their patients.
