Cataract Surgery Consultation
- You will have your first clinic consultation, not surgery.
- If you have decided to have surgery, after Dr. Lu discussed with you about the benefit and risk of the cataract surgery, you will sign surgery consent for your cataract surgery.
- If you need more time to think about your decision of your cataract or glaucoma surgery/procedure, we recommend you go home and take time to think over and discuss with your family members then let us know what is your final decision.
- Once you sign your consent, we will arrange your intraocular lens measurement to determine your IOL power, which must be done before your cataract surgery date.
- You will need to fill out the Hospital questionnaire so your anesthesiologist looking after you on you surgery day will able to review your medical issuers.
- We will provide your very detailed instruction sheet about when and where to go to the hospital, make sure you read it carefully.
- If you take Flowmax, please stop for 2 weeks before surgery since Flomax can interfere with iris muscle movement. If you cannot stop Flowmax before your surgery, please let Dr. Lu know on the day of the surgery so Dr. Lu will use a special medication to block the effect of the Flowmax.
- Some patient with high Eye pressure risk will be given Combigan or Diamox before your surgery.
- Please make sure take your high blood pressure medication with sips of wateron the morning of the surgery.
1st Post Cataract Surgery
- You will have your first post-surgery appointment within 24 hours. Most likely that will be arranged for the next day. However, it can also be at the late time of same surgery day. Nurse will give you the time before your discharge. You do not have to call office to confirm that appointment.
- Start the Tobradex every 2 hours right after your surgery until you go to bed. No need to get up to put the eye drop.
- Take Tylenol 325mg or 500 mg q4h if your eye has some discomfort.
- From next day, Tobradex every 4 hours (three meals and before bed time). No need to get up at night.
