How long do I have to wait to get my cataract operation?
The NHS constitution says that you should be seen by a consultant within 18 weeks of being referred to the hospital. This is a maximum waiting time and you may be seen earlier than this.
Current waiting times for cataract operations vary across the country. If you feel you are waiting for a very long time for your operation, we may be able to offer you advice and information that may help. Call our Helpline on 0303 123 9999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
