When you arrive at the center please check in at the reception desk. Please bring all of the paperwork you have received from your physicians' offices with you on the day of your procedure. You will be given an identification bracelet to be worn while you are a patient. You will also be asked to review and sign certain forms.
During the admission process, you will be asked for information regarding medical insurance coverage, including your insurance card, drivers license or other picture ID.
In order to prepare your chart, you will be asked for your medical information and family history. This information enables your physician and the nursing staff to better understand your medical needs. All information given is kept strictly confidential.
Immediately after your surgery, you will recover in the post-operative area where you will be offered a drink. We want to ensure that you are not nauseated and can tolerate fluids before leaving our facility.
Upon arrival in the post-op area, your significant other or the adult giving you a ride home will be brought to your bedside. Due to your anesthesia, we expect this person to listen to the follow-up instructions for your reference once you are home.
Depending on your type of surgery, you may or may not have a patch covering your eye. For more information, please ask your surgeon.
You will have a follow-up appointment with your surgeon one to two days after your surgery. Please bring your eye kit and eye drops to that appointment.
One to two business days after your surgery, a nurse from our surgery center will call to check on your progress and answer any questions you might have.
