Abstract: A case-control study was performed to determine whether an association exists between cancellation of ambulatory cataract surgery in adults, preoperative test results, and systemic diseases present at clinical examination. Among 500 adults who were to undergo ambulatory cataract surgery, cancellation of surgery due to medical events was not associated with results of preoperative testing (hemoglobin, serum glucose, and electrocardiogram). The rate of surgery cancellation was higher only in patients having a history of arterial hypertension.
