Considerations in Cataract Referral and Aftercare

Pre- and post-operative assessment of cataract surgical patients by a community-based optometrist is becoming more common in multidisciplinary cataract pathways. The optometrist needs to be aware of the eye examination involved in pre-surgical assessment to identify risk factors for complications, and post-operative examination results associated with a normal recovery process.

This presentation outlines common types of surgery utilised in treating cataract and the different types of IOL. It considers the assessment prior to cataract surgery and during follow-up, identifying the potential complications of cataract surgery and the appropriate management of these.
