Flawed decision-making influences the effectiveness of care on many levels. This review discusses cognitive shortcuts and biases that contribute to diagnostic error. The authors explore how and when these biases occur in opthalmology. Strategies to avoid decision-making errors include cognitive debiasing and heuristic examination.
