Before Surgery

Patients who smoke are advised strictly to discontinue smoking for 2-3 weeks before and post-surgery to aid healing. The patient is advised to arrange for a ride before and after surgery as the patient will be unable to drive themselves to and back due to medications.

For most procedures, a patient may be able to go back home the same day after surgery while in rare cases may require an overnight stay under supervision of the surgeon. The surgery procedure may take place in a hospital or at an outpatient facility.

Depending on the surgery a patient might be given local anaesthesia (Numbs the area) or general anaesthesia (Puts the patient to sleep). During the procedure, the surgeon may place special contact lenses on the eyes. These lenses help protect the eyes and shield them from the bright lights of the surgical room.

A patient should see their surgeon for a follow-up visit within 7 days after your surgery. In case if patients have had stitches, they may have them removed after 5 to 7 days. Most people can return to work and social activities about 2 weeks after surgery.
