SUSTAINABILITY IN THE OPERATING ROOM
Outpatient Ophthalmic Surgery Society: Surveys and Resources
Ophthalmic-driven ASCs are uniquely positioned to make a positive impact on environmental sustainability. Outpatient Ophthalmic Surgery Society (OOSS) is proud to collaborate with the joint-association EyeSustain strategic initiative.
Collaborate To Drive Real ChangeMuch of the waste created in ophthalmology is generated in the operating room. Environmentally friendly changes are good for environmental sustainability and good for business. Environmental sustainability is more than a collection of initiatives: it’s a commitment to the environment, the communities in which we operate, and the patients we serve.
Reducing Waste in Cataract SurgeryGiven that cataract surgery is the most common operation performed globally in all of medicine, ophthalmologists, nurses, ASCs, hospitals, regulatory agencies, and the surgical manufacturing industry have a crucial collaborative opportunity to reduce OR waste and to make cataract surgery more economically and environmentally sustainable.
