Purpose: To determine efficacy of a web-based tool for assessing residents’ knowledge of instruments used in cataract surgery. Methods: Seventy-seven ophthalmology residents and 4 faculty physicians at 15 ACGME-accredited ophthalmology residency programs completed the cataract instrumentation module, consisting of a pre-test, instructional database and post-test on 28 instruments. Results: Post-test score improved by 6.7 ± 4.3 questions (24.1 ± 15.5 %) when compared to the pre-test score among all respondents (P<0.0001).
