You will be contacted by the hospital or day surgery unit with your admission times in the week of your surgery. Please call our office if you have not received your admission time by the day before surgery. Usually you will need to present 1-2 hours before the time of surgery and expect to go home 3-4 hours later. You will need to arrange to have a responsible adult take you home and stay with you following surgery.
Sometimes the measurement of the eye that allows us to calculate the correct power of the intraocular lens needs to be measured a second or third time prior to surgery. You may be contacted to attend the clinic for this to be done. Some patients with a history of macular or inflammatory eye disease may be started on anti-inflammatory medications prior to surgery and should continue with these for one month after surgery
