How Do I Prepare for Cornea Surgery?

Prior to Cornea Surgery, general Pre-Operative assessments need to be done to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment.

In addition to the appointment(s) made with your Surgeon, you will likely need to make an appointment with your Primary Care Provider to obtain Pre-Operative clearance.

You may additionally need to make an appointment with your cardiologist for cardiac specific Pre-Operative clearance, depending on your health history.

You will not be allowed to drive yourself home after the surgery. Prepare in advance by coordinating someone who can drive you home from the surgery and help you get settled in for your recovery.

Someone will need to stay with you for 24 hours after your surgery. This is part of our patient safety policies. Prepare in advance by coordinating someone who can stay with you
