The ASC Cataract Program

Surgical Direct’s perfect solution for Cataracts in the ASC.

When we talk about an ASC cataract program, we’re talking about the fine details that allow cataract surgery in an ASC to be efficient, safe, and successful.

In the last two decades there has been a great shift in the number of procedures that have moved to the ASC environment. There are a number of reasons why this has happened, but one of the largest is the ease of patient inflow/outflow.

Over the last 5 years, the number of procedures moving to an ASC has increased dramatically. Technology, technique, and recovery times have all played a part in this “medical migration”.

Let’s put all the other procedures aside, and talk solely about cataract surgery.

The ASC environment is perfectly suited for cataract surgery. Procedures last roughly 10 to 15 minutes, and because of this, surgeons try to pack in as many patients during their day as possible.

Surgical Direct provides equipment solutions & support for ASCs that fit like a glove.


Within our mobile cataract service model, Surgical Direct provides the latest cataract technology, vast inventory support, in-room OR support, and capital expense relief that will dramatically change the way you host cataract surgery.

#1 Safety

Surgical direct provides the latest cataract equipment available. We supply your OR with the newest phaco technology platforms and ophthalmic microscopes without any capital expense. Our equipment is manufacturer maintained through regular preventative maintenance plans, ensuring that your surgeons will not only be operating with technology they want, but they can also trust.
Our protocol is to always provide backup equipment in case of unforeseen equipment issues which enables the day to be as smooth and efficient as possible. We take this very seriously and are committed to safety.

#2 Efficiency

Since an ASC is designed for efficient surgery, we play an active role in amplifying that efficiency. Our mobile cataract service is designed to help your OR team have a smoother surgery day. We do this through dedicated in-room support for every cataract. Our cataract technicians program settings for surgeons, help with troubleshooting, open sterile fields, and help with room turnover as much as possible. We believe that working together creates a safer and more efficient surgical environment.

#3 Logistics

Our cataract program provides inventory support that reduces the logistics for the ASC. We provide a large variety of inventory specific to cataract surgery that comes as part of our service. We bring pack lists of supplies that are specific to the surgeons requests, including blades, cannulas, viscoelastics, drapes, BSS, and so much more. In addition to normal case supplies, we also bring specialty supplies such as malyguin rings, capsular tension rings, vits, and others. But it doesn’t stop there…

We also supply all IOL needs for the surgeon. This includes primary lenses, backup lenses, and specialty lenses. We coordinate directly with the surgeon’s office for the lens picks for each surgery day, and arrive with those lenses ready…plus backups of everything.

#4 Savings

Working with Surgical Direct will benefit your OR greatly. Not only will there be an immediate savings of capital expense, but also great savings in time, inventory management, and stress. We believe our ASC cataract program is the perfect solution for the ASC that hosts cataract surgery, and we would love the opportunity to show you how.

If you are an ASC administrator (whether you currently host cataract surgery or not), give us a call to discuss how our program can benefit your OR.
