NHS Grampian puts cap on non-urgent surgery over winter - Evening Express
NHS Grampian has confirmed it is only booking category one and two patients, who require surgery within a month or within three months respectively, in January and February.

The health board said the move was part of its winter plans and there would be exceptions where surgeries do not impact on beds. [...] It follows a row in October after NHS Tayside announced it had put on hold all planned, non-urgent operations for three weeks over the festive period. Category three patients, who require surgery within a year, will not be routinely booked for January and February, under NHS Grampian’s plans.

How do I shop for LASIK? - vision nearsighted | Ask MetaFilter
"I had a very strong prescription (somewhere around -10) with astigmatism, pre-LASIK. The day after the surgery, I was utterly elated to have 20/20 vision. Nobody could believe it.

Unfortunately, I went from 20/20, to -4 and -4.25, in less than five years. I'm now at about -5.25 and -5.75. Even worse, because LASIK flattened the surface of my cornea I can no longer wear soft contact lenses. I now have RGP (hard) lenses custom-made at $1300 a pair. They have just developed a more comfortable type of rigid lens, but they'll run me $2500 a pair. I have huge issues with dry eyes (another LASIK complication), and with debris getting trapped under the lenses.

I'm not necessarily trying to put you off: my surgery was a long time ago. That said my (brilliant) specialist optometrist says that the same problems persist. He basically does not recommend LASIK to anybody, but especially not to people with strong prescriptions and/or astigmatism. LASIK surgeons love these candidates, because they experience the most dramatic short-term results, and tend to go around evangelizing about how brilliant it is."

Is Lasik worth pursuing if my eyes are wonky? - lasereyesurgery vision astigmatism | Ask MetaFilter
"As another anecdotal point, my dad is an optometrist, who won't recommend Lasik for any of our family (who all wear glasses), for this same reason. He says people who have it generally end up back in glasses at some point in the future, and have more complications with wearing contacts after having had Lasik.

Also, while rare, the complications can be catastrophic, he's had a patient before with permanent, uncorrectable, triple vision because the laser was programmed on the wrong angle."

How My Research Degree Taught Me I’m Not a Surgeon - Student Doctor Network
> I reflect on that as having been one of the biggest pieces of insight I gained from the research process. And when I eventually undertook my surgery rotation, I could see that surgeons loved the practical work. They loved being in the theatre. They loved working with their hands. They loved being able to fix something on the spot and institute a tangible, concrete impact then and there. I preferred to sit in the theatre staff lounge and read my USMLE books. Essentially, I drew a parallel between the lab and the operating theatre. Both were mechanical. Both were realms of significant hands-on skill. If one enjoys the physical process of working in the lab, then there is an increased probability he or she will enjoy working in the surgical theatre.
