  The instructions below are provided to patients as general guidelines. Your physician may also provide instructions specific to the procedure being performed. Contact the center with any questions.


What To Do And Expect Before Surgery:
  Notify your surgeon before coming to the center if there is any change in your physical condition, such as being ill, having a fever, or a wound near your surgery site.

  You will receive a packet from your surgeon regarding procedure pre-op instructions. Please review these items prior to surgery. Please come prepared with an accurate medical history and a list of current medications and allergies.

  A Bay Eye Surgery Center nurse will call you a few days prior to your surgery to review health information, discuss medications and answer any other questions. Unless otherwise instructed by your physician, take your usual Rx medications and eat a light breakfast/lunch. Avoid heavy, fatty foods.

 
  It is your responsibility to make advanced arrangements for a responsible adult to drive you home. We advise that you do not drive yourself or be left alone after surgery.

  You will be directed by the staff at Bay Eye Clinic as to your arrival time at Bay Eye Surgery Center. This is usually 30 minutes before scheduled surgery time.
