Eye Surgery Audit
Eye Surgery Audit 2018 / 2019
The primary measure for the quality of cataract surgery is the incidence of ‘Posterior Capsule Rupture (PCR)’, which represents one of the more common complications associated with cataract surgery. During 2018-19, Mr Diamond performed 997 cataract operations and had 3 posterior capsule ruptures, an incidence of 0.3%. The UK national average for PCR is 1.9% while the majority of UK eye surgeons perform fewer than 300 cataract operations per year.
