Description Aim of the Study: To compare High Volume with Low Volume Cataract Surgery Outcomes in a tertiary eye care hospital in Garhwal Himalayan Region, over a 30-day period, in terms of Quality as gauged in terms of Intra-operative complications and their management and Post-operative complications and their management (on day 1 and day 30).
Materials and Methods: A prospective, randomized, observational study conducted on 300 eyes of 300 patients at a tertiary hospital, total duration of 4 months was taken for data collection. Patients were divided into 2 groups: A) those coming in the low volume season (summer months) and B) those coming in the high volume season (winter months). Normal standard protocols were followed pre/per/post operatively.
Results: Intra-operative complications between the two months (settings) by independent t-test the p value was 1.00 which was not statistically significant (mean of complication: August=0.86+1.83; December=0.86 + 1.29). 1 month post-operative complications between the two months (settings) by independent t-test the p value was 0.56 which was not statistically significant (mean of complication: August=0.09 + 0.30; December=0.18 + 0.4).
Conclusion: Intra-operative, post-operative complications on 1st day and at one month follow up, High Volume Cataract Surgery (greaterthan 40 Manual Small Incision Cataract surgeries) does not affect the quality when compared with Low Volume Cataract Surgery over a 30-days period in a tertiary institute in Central India.
