New cataract guideline has been published by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

This guideline covers managing cataracts in adults aged 18 and over. It aims to improve care before, during and after cataract surgery by optimising service organisation, referral and surgical management, and reducing complications. It further aims to improve the availability of information for people with cataracts before, during and after cataract surgery.

Sir Andrew Dillon, chief executive of NICE, said: ‘Cataract surgery is one of the ways in which the NHS can transform our lives. Our guideline will help patients with cataracts and those treating them to make choices about the treatment they should have.’

You can find the new guide on the NICE website.
