Cataract surgery patients have the option of admitting to a ward or luxury private room at which point they undergo a general medical checkup that ensures their key health metrics such as blood pressure, ECG, and fasting blood sugar are up to the required mark for the surgery. Once the report is cleared and patient is fit for the surgery they are immediately taken into the operating theatre for the procedure that only takes a few hours. Following the surgery the patient is sent back to the ward or room for recovery and refreshments and closely monitored for signs of discomfort and discharged if cleared. The whole procedure takes only a few hours, making it fast, efficient and cost effective for the patient.
