Schedule your surgery and discuss your implant options with your surgeon. Plan your pre-operative appointment with your primary care provider, if applicable.
Your PCP should fax your medical clearance, EKG, and referral/authorization to the facility at (305) 442-0084. You will then be provided your arrival time.
You should begin any prescribed eye drops for the operative eye as directed. Plan your transportation arrangements. You may not drive and must have a responsible adult to receive you after surgery.
