Pre & Post Surgical Care

Guiding You Through the Surgical Process

As your primary eye care providers, we work with you to maintain your eye health and help you make the best choices for your visual needs. Our highly trained doctors receive ongoing education and follow best practices to help you through the process of operative surgery in a reassuring and proactive way.

Medical Optometry America is here to answer your questions and take the necessary steps to prepare for your procedure.

Seamless Care During Every Stage

To help ensure your procedure goes smoothly and seamlessly, we have developed protocols and close working relationships with all our partner surgeons.

After an assessment, your Medical Optometry America eye doctor may recommend surgery. We will explain your procedure to you and answer any questions you may have about the operation.

Next, we will refer you to an ophthalmologist to perform surgery. In the meantime, we will help prepare you for your operation. That includes treating any pre-existing conditions that might interfere with your recovery or achieving optimal surgical results, such as dry eye, and performing any assessments you might need before your procedure.

After your surgery, you will need a number of follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, evaluate your healing, and test your vision to see if any correction is required after recovery. Your Medical Optometry America eye doctor is the ultimate recovery resource. Our extensive medical knowledge allows us to provide a higher standard of post-surgical care.

Our commitment to ongoing education means we can provide you with the most recent information regarding recovery management and post-surgery expectations.

Cataract Surgery

Today you have the ability to choose which IOL is placed in your eye during this procedure, which only has to be done once in your lifetime.

If you require IOL replacement surgery, your Medical Optometry America doctor will work closely with you to select the perfect lens to suit your unique physical and vocational needs as well as your lifestyle.
