I perform over 300 small incision phacoemulsification (modern small incision) cataract surgeries annually with over 99% as a day case. My cataract outcomes are as follows: over the past three years (1,173 consecutive cases), 96% of my patients saw 6/12 or better postoperatively (comparative figure is 91% from the national cataract audit). My capsular rupture rate, the most commonly sited measurement of surgical dexterity was 0.6% (1.9% national cataract audit).
