I`m assuming that DMR is device medical reutilisable, if so

Notes to answerer
Asker: I can see the connection between savonette and small disposable test strips for example but less convinced of this in terms of an eye operation. What would they test for, and why wait until last minute before op?

Asker: Hi, Thanks for explanation. I`m not an expert in medical terms so tend to look at things such as this as an engineer, i.e. what does this involve and how do we approach the action undertaken.? The PL still has me puzzled. French abbreviations and/or acronyms always give me a headache. I`ll look at this in the morning, after England rugby match.

Asker: Checking with the people involved not a bad idea. I thought that over the last 16 years we had had enough experience of opthalmology departments to answer most questions. Wife had a disastrous op, not only badly performed but unnecessary. my own experience at different clinic for a cataract with multi-focal implant was a picnic by comparison.

Asker: My wife has now tried out almost all the departments in hospital. We no longer bother with local hospital but drive down to Toulouse. Two and half hour drive but at least we have confidence in the doctors there.
