A center nurse will call and give instructions regarding eating, drinking and medication before surgery. She will also discuss what you should wear. Your surgeon will notify you of any other special instructions.
Day of Surgery
Surgery will be cancelled for patients who have not made arrangements to be accompanied home by a responsible adult. When you arrive at Columbus Eye Surgery Center you will be greeted at the reception desk and asked to verify pre-admission information and sign any consent forms necessary. A television viewing room is available to allow the patient’s family members to view the surgery, if approved by your physician. A staff person is available to answer any questions.
Patients are taken to the admitting area and prepared for surgery. Following surgery, patients are returned to the recovery area for observation by the nursing staff. Postoperative instructions will be given to the patient at this time, and then the patient is discharged when vital signs are stable.
