Dr. Robert Cionni has been named the president of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS). Cionni is a cataract and refractive surgery specialist who also serves as the medical director of The Eye Institute of Utah. He assumed the president role this month at the organization's Symposium and Congress in San Diego. Cionni has been with ASCRS since his first year as a practicing ophthalmologist in 1989. He most recently served as its vice president.

Robert Cionni, an ophthalmologist and founder of The Eye Institute of Utah, says he gave up trying because, "It was a nightmare."
Between his travel, speaking schedule and cataract removal surgeries, he decided not to even try sorting out whether the companies got it right.
Cionni was the only Utah physician to fall near the top of both kinds of payments - for research and for general payments such as consulting and speaking fees.
Alcon paid Cionni $98,930 to run clinical trials on new cataract surgery methods, and the company accounted for most of the $80,730 he made as a consultant and speaker.
Patients should know, he says, that's not all profit. For instance, the Eye Institute employs four full-time staffers who help run clinical trials, and Alcon's reimbursements help cover that expense. Speaker fees and travel costs typically do not make up for lost time in surgery, he says.

Over a career spanning more than 25 years, Dr. Cionni has pioneered some of the most advanced techniques in his field. He is widely published and continues to be an invited to speaker at ophthalmic meetings worldwide.
"ASCRS has been so important in my career development. I am grateful to Dr. Robert Osher for introducing me to this organization as I came out of residency," said Dr. Cionni. "ASCRS quickly became one of my main avenues for learning about the newest techniques and technologies that now provide improved outcomes for my patients. As time went by, ASCRS also provided me tremendous insight into managing a practice and navigating the pressures brought by ever-changing regulations."
Dr Cionni has been an ASCRS member since his first year in practice, 1989. Since then, he has presented or instructed at 26 consecutive ASCRS·ASOA Symposium and Congress meetings.
