Background: Cataract surgery is the most common operative procedure performed in Canada, and how patients are affected by wait times for this surgery has important clinical, public health and health policy considerations. We conducted a systematic review to understand the relation between wait time for cataract surgery and patient outcomes and the variables that modify this relation. Methods: We performed an electronic search of 11 databases and the proceedings of 4 conferences. The search was… Expand
TITLE : Interventions Used to Determine the Appropriate Patient Populations for Cataract Surgery : A Review of the Clinical Evidence and Guidelines
  • 2013
Extended wait times for elective procedures has been an important issue in the Canadian health care system for many years, and sight restoration was among the five priority clinical areas identifiedExpand
Consequences of waiting for cataract surgery
TLDR
Consequences of waiting for cataract surgery are multivariate in nature and easily extend beyond the clinical setting into sociodemographic realms and public health costs and policy arenas. Expand
Variability in the prioritization of patients for cataract extraction.
TLDR
Allocation of cataract surgery does not appear to be correlated with the need for surgery or the likely benefit to be derived from it in the Spanish participant centres, and the use of explicit and standardized priority criteria could provide a fairer, more rational way to manage waiting lists for this procedure. Expand
Waiting time for cataract extraction: Predictive factors and influence on outcomes
TLDR
The finding that some contradictory sociodemographic factors influence time spent on a waiting list for cataract extraction suggests that rational, explicit, and homogeneous appropriateness and priority criteria are not being applied to these patients. Expand
Validation of priority criteria for cataract extraction.
TLDR
A priority score was developed that identified patients most likely to experience the greatest improvements from cataract extraction and could provide a fairer and more rational way to prioritize patients for cataracts extraction. Expand
Policy strategies to reduce waiting times for elective surgery: A scoping review and evidence synthesis.
TLDR
According to the evidence found for this review, interventions most likely should be multidimensional, with prioritization strategies on the waiting lists to incorporate equity criteria, together with quality management improvements of the surgical pathways and the use of operating rooms, as well as improvements in the planning of the surgery schedule.

Recurring themes during cataract assessment and surgery
The aim of this review was to discuss frequently encountered themes such as cataract surgery in presence of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), dementia, Immediate Sequential Bilateral CataractExpand
Potential for 2 priority systems to be used as appropriateness of indication tools for cataract surgery.
OBJECTIVE To test 2 systems developed to prioritize patients on waiting lists for cataract surgery, the Western Canadian Waiting List (WCWL), and the Catalan Agency for Health Technology AssessmentExpand
Reducing wait time for cataract surgery: comparison of 2 historical cohorts of patients in Montreal.
TLDR
Patients had cataract surgery sooner in the disease process in 2006-2007 compared with 1999-2000, with changes in visual acuity after surgery that were clinically significant in both cohorts. Expand
Patient preference and pain-reported outcomes for topical versus subtenon anesthetic for cataract surgery
PURPOSE: Cataract extraction and lens implantation is the most common surgical procedure performed worldwide, with surgeons opting for either a topical or a subtenon anesthetic in majority of cases.Expand

Patients' acceptance of waiting for cataract surgery: what makes a wait too long?
TLDR
The patient perspective on acceptability of waiting times for cataract surgery suggests that restricting waiting times to less than six months and preferably less than three months and utilizing self-reported measures of visual difficulty in prioritizing patients may contribute to improved management of waiting systems. Expand
What factors influence cataract waiting list time?
TLDR
There are specific factors that influence clinicians when prioritising patients for cataract surgery, and this study has demonstrated that there is a perceived threat to independent living or employment that influences waiting list time. Expand
Measuring the quality of performance in the management of waiting lists: using cataract surgery as an example.
TLDR
Visual acuity, cataract symptomatology, and visual functioning were not predictive of waiting time, suggesting that this information is not consistently being used to prioritize patients. Expand
Determinants of patient satisfaction with cataract surgery and length of time on the waiting list
TLDR
Patient perspectives on MAWT and satisfaction with WT are important inputs to the process of determining WT standards for levels of patient priority. Expand
Views of older people on cataract surgery options: an assessment of preferences by conjoint analysis
TLDR
The findings show that some potential cataract patients prefer a greater risk of complication combined with a short wait than a low complication rate and a longer wait, and a strong negative correlation between importance scores for these factors. Expand
Determinants of patient satisfaction after cataract surgery in 3 settings
TLDR
A causal model of patient satisfaction was tested, indicating that satisfaction was related to the patient's preoperative expectations and the quality of care given during the hospital stay and follow‐up at the outpatient clinic. Expand
Variation in indications for cataract surgery in the United States, Denmark, Canada, and Spain: results from the International Cataract Surgery Outcomes Study
TLDR
Significantly more restricted indications for cataract surgery were observed in Manitoba and Barcelona, including differences in sociodemographic characteristics, access to care, surgeons’ willingness to operate, and patient demand. Expand
The Prioritization of Patients on Waiting Lists for Cataract Surgery: Validation of the Western Canada Waiting List Project Cataract Priority Criteria Tool
TLDR
Evidence is provided to support the convergent and predictive validity of the Cataract Priority Criteria Score (PCS) and multiple patient outcomes should be used in the evaluation of the validity of priority scores. Expand
PRIORITIZING PATIENTS FOR ELECTIVE SURGERY
TLDR
The current method of prioritizing patients in New Zealand requires reconsideration, although a gold standard method for prioritization is not immediately apparent from these results. Expand

TLDR
