Direct Cataract Scheme

All cataracts referrals should be directed through the enhanced service pathway to ensure that the patient is counselled on the risks and benefits, meets the referral criteria and requires and wants surgery. If you do not participate in the service or are out of the area, please send the patient to one of the accredited optometrists with a copy of the referral letter.
