Ophthalmology is one of the high volume outpatient specialties, wherein patients end up making multiple visits even for simple conditions like cataract and refractive errors, and of course for complex and chronic conditions. It also has a high surgical throughput, with cataract surgeries accounting for a significant volume of the total. Large amounts of disposable instruments and materials are used in ophthalmology, increasing the carbon footprint.
