Every patient scheduled for eye surgery needs to undergo some blood tests and then obtain a “fitness certificate “. This involves two visits , first to a pathology lab and then to a physician’s clinic. Also eye surgery is best performed in a dedicated ophthalmic centre where all the staff is geared to attend to the specific needs of patients undergoing eye surgery. However many cataract patients also have medical ailments like diabetes, hypertension or heart disease. To take care of any medical emergency that may occur, such patients have to be operated upon in a general hospital. But here the cataract patient is likely to be ignored when surrounded by more seriously ill patients. The nursing staff is more focused on treating a heart attack rather than putting eyedrops in a cataract patient’s eye.
