Surgical Planning

Since 1985 our goal has always been to provide the highest quality care for complex glaucoma and cataract problems. Our utilization of state-of-the-art surgical care and medical therapy combine to yield the best possible results for our patients.

What to Expect Before Your Visit

Prior to your scheduled surgical appointment, you will receive a text message, email or phone call from the surgery center within 1 day prior to your procedure to review medical history, medications and important pre-surgical information, as well as your arrival time for surgery.

Arrival times are not usually given until the day before the procedure.  These are given based on cases and center time availability.

The Evening Before Surgery:

What to Expect the Day of Surgery:

MEDICAL CLEARANCE: A pre‐surgery evaluation by your family doctor or internist is may be required. This appointment needs to be within 30 days of surgery. Please take the form we have given you to your doctor. This is your responsibility to do prior to surgery and failure may result in the cancellation of your surgery.MEDICATIONS TO DISCONTINUE: Prior to surgery you MAY be asked to stop taking some of your prescriptions, your family doctor & the surgical center will review this with you should some medications need to be discontinued. DO NOT STOP any prescribed medications without first checking with the doctor who prescribed them.

EYE DROPS PREOPERATIVE and POSTOPERATIVE: You will be prescribed an antibiotic eye drop to start one day prior to surgery  four times a day in the surgery eye. You will also use this drop the morning of surgery. You will continue all of your prescribed eye drops through the day before surgery. The morning of surgery you will only use the antibiotic eye drop in your surgery eye, no glaucoma or previous eye drops should be used that morning. You will also be prescribed a drop that is for use only after surgery, which is usually Prednisone Acetate, Pred Forte, or Durezol.

POSTOPERATIVE APPOINTMENT: You will be given an appointment to come in for a post operative appointment after surgery. The post operative appointment will be scheduled by our surgical scheduling team. At your post operative appointment we will remove your patch (if you have one), check your vision and eye pressure and you will be given instructions on how to use your drops postoperatively.   Please note that in some cases you may not be seen by your doctor the next day, as our doctors work out of other offices.  If you would like to see your doctor for the one day post op visit, you may have to travel to another office.
