  • There are generally no restrictions on eating or taking medication before or on your surgery day, however, please advise us of any medications you are taking.
  • We recommend avoiding alcohol hours before and after your procedure, as this tends to dehydrate the tissues.
  • You will be given prescriptions for post-operative eye drops that must be filled prior to your procedure.
  • Payment is due before the surgery day so that you can focus on your procedure and getting well, rather than the hassles of payment and financing.
