Specialist surgical services

This currently includes a number of ophthalmic procedures, including:

  • Cataract and laser cataract surgery
  • Vision correction procedures (e.g. laser eye surgery, refractive lens exchange)
  • Corneal transplantation
  • Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)
  • Glaucoma filtration surgery (trabeculectomy)
  • Vitrectomy
  • Pterygium surgery.

Quality management

The Australian NSQHS Standards were developed to protect the public from harm and improve the quality of health care.

A surveillance audit is undertaken regularly to ensure that our processes are monitored, maintained and reviewed and that improvements are continuously implemented. A re-certification audit is conducted every year, with all safety and quality processes assessed to ensure the standards required by the NSQHS are still being met.

Forest Road Day Surgery supports partnering with consumers to help them make informed decisions about their treatment and care options. Through the use of Clinical Care Standards, we help people get the right care in the right place at the right time. The Clinical Care Standards are produced by The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, which also oversees the NSQHS Standards. You can use the information contained in the Clinical Care Standards to guide discussions with our healthcare professionals about treatment options suitable for your condition.
