Does It Make Sense to Perform Cataract Surgery Simultaneously on Both Eyes?
October 30, 2010
In Canada, they are doing simultaneous cataract surgery in both eyes. The advantages are obvious- less cost and less downtime for both patient and doctor. Downside? If there is an infection, it may affect both eyes, and the patient is in big trouble, and both the surgeon and patient may never forgive themselves. Until the law catches up, I will not take any legal risk and stay away from that.
