YES, my fellow ophthalmologists, you can use these CataractCoach articles, pictures, and videos in your podium presentation. Just email us first and we will get you higher resolution pictures and the complete video file (which you can then edit down to just the part you want). Please be sure to give credit in your presentation, and then any non-profit, non-commercially sponsored use is free of charge.

This only applies to truly educational programs that are not sponsored by a medical, surgical, or pharmaceutical company. We expressly forbid any of these for-profit companies from using our materials, in any manner whether promotional or internal, unless a licensing fee is arranged and paid in advance. If Company A is sponsoring a meeting, then any use of CataractCoach material must be properly licensed in advance. If Company B is giving what they feel is a truly educational program to residents in training, then they still must properly license the CataractCoach material.

This site is meant for your education and entertainment only and it does not, and cannot, provide specific medical or surgical advice for any specific patient or physician.

Dr. Devgan did not invent cataract surgery and many of the techniques shown here have been presented by multiple authors over the course of many decades. Our goal is to teach these best techniques of cataract surgery to ophthalmologists from around the world. If your idea is presented here, please contact us so that we can include your comments and insights into the post / video. Thank you for being a pioneer in our field.
