We begin with an eye exam. We measure the length and curvature of your eye, which helps determine the right lens implant for you. Dr. Sharpe and his team will discuss various lens implant options that may eliminate glasses after cataract surgery.
Dr. Sharpe will also prescribe anti-inflammatory and antibiotic eye drops that reduce swelling and the risk of infection. We’ll provide specific instructions on how to use them after surgery.
At the outpatient surgery center, you will be checked in and asked to sign an informed consent document. You will be taken to a room and given drops to prepare your eye for the surgery. You will be given an IV with medicine that will help you relax. Most people feel sleepy during the procedure.
