With, very, very few exceptions, characters in the series don't wear eye protection when performing surgery. It is standard practice throughout hospitals in the United States to do so. However, this was a deliberate decision made by the director for theatrical reasons.

Q
Do the patients understand House when he's making a sarcastic/witty comment?
A
Almost every character and guest character on the show is intelligent. That includes the patients, their family, lawyers/cops/politicians, and others. All of them can think quickly and respond to a witty comment quickly. Although a non-doctor character doesn't understand the medical part of House's comments, they always get his point. Many patients are also experts or respected figures in their own profession/field, so they can often talk to House and his team on the same intellectual level.
Q
Why is the cane on the wrong side? Is that a mistake?
A
Hugh Laurie made this statement on a guest appearance of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, November 16, 2005. It's also been stated by executive producer and writer David Shore that some people prefer to use the cane with their dominant hand regardless of which leg is injured.This was also addressed in House M.D.: Whac-A-Mole (#3.8).It is not a mistake. Biomechanically a cane should be used in the opposite hand when the injury is at the hip joint. If the injury is at the knee or below, it is more efficient and more biomechanically sound to hold the cane on the same side as the problem. In House's case the injury is involving muscles that are primary movers--specifically extensors--of the knee (he seems to be able to move the hip at will). It can be assumed, therefore, that the cane is to compensate for his knee instability; thus he is actually using it properly on the side of the injured leg.As someone who suffers from constant leg pain I would like to add that by carrying the cane on the same side as the bad leg you can put most of your weight on the cane and hardly even use your leg. If you use the cane on the opposite leg while it may help with stabilizing as you walk you can not put nearly as much of your weight on it thus putting more pressure on your painful leg." Bear weight on the proper side. You should hold your cane on the same side of your body that your injury is on. If you are using the cane for general mobility rather than an injury, hold the cane using your dominant hand and bear weight on this side of your body. This will make the cane bear the majority of your weight, as well as the impact caused by your motion when walking (eHow)."http://www.ehow.com/how_2050240_use-cane.html
