Like any other surgery, eye surgery requires pre-operative care and post-operative care. To ensure both sides of a surgical procedure are addressed, pre and post-operative care functions as a working partnership between a patient and medical staff to make sure all the bases are covered. Not receiving the proper care before and after surgery can lead to complications including slower healing, a raised risk of infection, and the need for further treatment or surgical correction.
What to Expect
Surgery can seem like a scary thing, especially for those facing a procedure for the first time in their lives. Proper pre-and post-operative care addresses anxieties that many of our patients experience regarding eye surgery. Our optometry professionals will provide expert guidance, monitoring, and support for patients throughout the entire process of surgery.
Factors that Affect Pre-Operative Care
Several everyday behaviors can have a big impact on the outcome of eye surgery.
- Prescriptions for other conditions may need to be changed if they have a blood-thinning effect.
- Antibiotic treatments and prescriptions should be completed before surgery.
- You will not be permitted to eat for a set time before surgery to prevent unwanted physical reactions.
When the surgical procedure is completed, post-operative care will be necessary to ensure safe and effective recovery. We will monitor you for signs of post-operative complications or infections and provide treatment as the need arises. Post-operative care is necessary to ensure everything heals properly so you can return to your life free of worries.
