Scheduling cataract surgery seems like a daunting task. However, the surgery schedulers at Relf EyeCare Specialists have you covered. Headed by Vicki, our staff will make sure you feel confident with your surgery experience. A folder is given for each eye surgery, with very specific instructions and check off lists for eye drops.
Do I have to set up a pre-op visit with my primary care doctor? What about post-op eye visits?
No. Our surgery scheduling staff sets up the pre-op physical visit with your primary care doctor, and sets up all post-op appointments at our office. All appointments are written in your cataract surgery folder.
Do I need a driver?
Yes. You will need a driver for the day of surgery, as mild anesthesia is given. Pre-op and post-op visits usually do not require a driver if you feel comfortable driving.
When do I take my eye drops? Will they last the whole time?
Eye drops are started 2 days prior to surgery and most commonly are taken for 4 weeks after surgery. Most times you will have plenty of eye drops, but if you run out simply call and we can refill.
