I was due to have surgery at optical express the surgeon said he needed more on my medical history as I had cataract surgery on my right eye is that correct

so would it be better for the nhs to do my operation instead he said they have better equipment and said he could not get correct measurements needed
they may have better equipment. if you have had prior cataract surgery, they may need equipment that can do better measurements.
