Situations are getting difficult for the elderly, who now have to wait for their cataract operation turn and all thanks to the rationing being made by the NHS. Eye experts have warned that if elderly are not operated for cataract on time, then there are quiet high chances that they are left with more weak eyes and suffer from inability to read.
This is the reason that a group of experts from institutions like the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, the Optical Confederation and the Royal College of Ophthalmologists, have released a joint statement. The statement is of the nature that the authorities concerned should keep all the facts in mind and then decide the further step in this matter.
There have been instances where PCTs have made it clear to patients having cataract in two eyes that they are going to conduct surgery on only one eye.
Professor Harminder Dua, who is the president of Royal College, said, "Patients should be offered treatment if a cataract is adversely affecting their daily living, they fully understand the risks and benefits of surgery and they want to have". The Department of Health said that they agree that treatment to the needy should be provided.
