Prior to cataract surgery

Cataract surgery at the Excimer Eye Clinic is performed as an out-patient operation, i.e. without admission of the patient to hospital. One of the important conditions for the operation is a comprehensive diagnostic testing, which provides an objective and complete picture of the state of a patient’s vision.

Apart from diagnostics, the pre-surgical preparation includes consultation by an anesthesiologist and cardiologist. This allows to consider in detail the general state of the patient with the aim of selecting the anesthetic, avoiding any complications from the cardio-vascular system and ensuring exellent vision after the operation.
