Coronavirus (COVID-19) Patient/Carer Notice

Have you been diagnosed with cataracts? Here’s some important information to consider before you start planning surgery.

1. Being diagnosed with a cataract does not automatically mean you need surgery.

Cataract removal is only recommended if your vision is impaired and affects your ability to carry out daily tasks (e.g. driving, being safe and looking after yourself at home, participating in hobbies).

Whitehorse Day Surgery acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Land on which all of our day hospitals around Australia are placed. We extend this respect to all First Nations peoples, as patients, employees and community members – and to their Elders past, present and emerging.
