ABSTRACT
In August 2001 the Mater Hospital in Belfast opened a new day procedures unit. The unit comprises an admissions area, two theatres, an endoscopy suite and a 23-bed ward, with one theatre almost solely dedicated to ophthalmic surgery. There are three consultant ophthalmologists who currently perform cataract, orbital, corneal, vitreoretinal and plastic surgery on a regular basis. In the four years that the unit has been running we have had a 57% increase in ophthalmic day case surgery.
