Ophthalmology accounts for around 6% of all NHS procedures, with 700,000 elective
admissions per year of which 400,000 are cataracts and over 95% are day cases in England.
This document will concentrate on the facilities and equipment for provision of ophthalmic
major surgery but will touch on requirements for minor operations (see also RCOphth
Standards for intravitreal injections).
