Cataract Surgery

Patients having cataract surgery can get information about their procedure and how to properly prepare here.  All patients are asked to complete a Pre-Surgery Package prior to their procedure.  The Pre-Surgical Package can be found at the link below.  This is important information about your medications and health history that is required before your procedure can begin.  It is important to complete these documents found within the Pre-Surgical Package to ensue your visit runs smoothly.  Once complete these forms can be emailed to the PreAdmission Department or printed and brought in the day of your procedure.

You will receive a phone call up to the day before your surgery to ensure you received, read, understood and completed your Pre-Op documents.

  • Do NOT take any diabetic medication the morning of your procedure.
  • Bring your healthcard
