Eye operation. A patient awaits eye surgery on an operating table in a hospital surgical theatre. The patient is covered by a blue sheet with a hole through which the eye can be seen. A worker (at upper left) prepares equipment for the operation. Various machines are seen around the table. These may include monitoring equipment to assess the patient's condition and, particularly for eye operations, laser equipment. Lasers are routinely used in eye operations, for example, to treat retinal detachment, glaucoma or small retinal tumours.
