JCRS case studies highlighting interesting and complex cases


Case studies provide an excellent opportunity not only for learning, but to provide a richer understanding of how the theoretical is applied in “real life” settings. See below to see a list of peer-reviewed case studies provided by the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (JCRS). Regularly updated, and free to access.
