For Dr. Chang, engaging patients in the decision-making process is the essential part of treatment; “Once we make a diagnosis, the treatment really depends on the patient.  One size doesn’t fit all.”  This is particularly true with cataract surgery; “People have different needs and preferences, and there is a myriad of surgical options.  Every choice comes with a tradeoff, and my job is to help patients make optimal decisions for themselves.”
