What needs to be done to prepare for Cataract surgery?
Before surgery, special measurements of your eye need to be taken to determine the
correct implant required for your eye. This will be arranged at the office and can be done with either laser or ultrasound.
EYE DROPS You will receive a prescription for three (3) different kinds of eye drops. Vigamox,- Antibiotic 3x/day beginning 2 days before surgery Maxidex- Steroid 3x/day beginning 2 days before surgery Nevanec - Anti-inflammatory 3x/day beginning 2 days before surgery
Please remember to put drops in the morning of your surgery and to resume the drops
when you arrive home from the surgery. On the day of surgery, it is advisable to instill all drops every 2 hours. You CANNOT overdose on these drops. The more the better on the first day.
You will then continue the drops 3x/day all 3 bottles, for another week and continue
to take the Nevanec for 2 more weeks or until the Nevanac is used up. You can stop the first 2 (Maxidex and Vigamox) after 1 week
You should purchase 3 new bottles for the second eye. DON’TUSE OLD BOTTLES! There is a repeat on your prescription for the new bottles
If you received a blue kit, inside the kit are samples of lubricating drops that you can
use as often as you wish to lubricate your eye for often the eyes are dry, itchy and sandy feeling in the days or weeks after surgery. You can buy more over the counter if you wish to continue using these drop OTHER IMPORTANT INSTRCTIONS
