Seventh cataract audit annual report

The RCOphth is delighted to announce its latest annual report. Audit results also show that cataract surgery is being undertaken at an earlier stage in the disease process than ever before, possibly because of the increasing safety of the procedure. Data gathered from 177 centres over a 12-month period to 31 March 2023 indicate that fewer than 1 in 200 patients experience substantial reduction in vision following cataract surgery.
