Cataract Surgery

What to do Before Surgery

How to best prepare:

  • Start using your eye drops three days before your procedure in the surgery eye as directed.
  • On the morning of your surgery, you should take any medications approved by your surgeon and which you normally take in the morning. These may include seizure, cardiac, high blood pressure, or breathing medication. Take them with just a sip of water.
  • You should bring a responsible adult to provide you with a ride after your procedure.
  • You should wear a short-sleeved shirt or blouse that buttons in the front.
  • You should take a bath or shower prior to your procedure.
  • You should not wear makeup or false eyelashes.
  • You should not wear jewelry or bring any valuables to the surgery center.
  • You should not wear contact lenses.
  • You should not wear any restrictive clothing that day; do not wear pantyhose.
  • You should not eat or drink after midnight on the night before your procedure.

What to Expect After Surgery

It is normal for your eye to be slightly scratchy or irritated as the numbing medication wears off. You may even have double vision for a day or two. If you experience severe pain, excessive bleeding, or a decrease in your vision, call us at (239) 542–2020.
