“Excimer” clinic on social media:

Information for patients: before and after the surgery

Vision diagnostics

One of the most important actions before microsurgical intervention is to have your vision system thoroughly diagnosed to obtain complete information about your health. The clinic uses a combination of diagnostics equipment to perform all necessary examinations.

Appointment with doctors

The diagnostics at Excimer also includes appointment with ophthalmologist. Anesthesiologist and cardiologist consultations are also available, if required. The consultations help evaluate the patient’s condition to select the best anesthesia tactics and avoid any adverse responses from the cardiovascular system.

Preoperative assessment*

Tests to be submitted before the surgery:

  • Hepatitis B blood test.
  • Hepatitis C blood test.
  • WR blood test.
  • Complete blood count
  • HIV blood test.
  • Electrocardiogram.

Please produce original test reports (issued no earlier than 1 month before the surgery).

*Excimer also offers complete preoperative assessment services.

On the day of surgery

The patient must come to the clinic as appointed (with the passport and test reports) and sign the contract. Then the patient is referred to the surgical department for intervention. The total time the patient spends at the clinic on the day of surgery is about three hours. It includes preparation, anesthesia administration, surgery and postoperative examination.

Recommendations before surgery:

  • take a shower;
  • wash your hair;
  • put on clean clothes (cotton, if possible);
  • bring sunglasses;
  • avoid consumption of alcohol;
  • avoid excess exercise.

There are no restrictions as to meals, however, it is recommended that the latest meal be at least 4 hours before the surgery.


Excimer uses a one-day procedure for cataract extraction, so there is no need for hospitalization. The intervention proper takes about 10 to 15 minutes.

After the surgery

For the purpose of surgery, the pupils must be dilated. Therefore, it is recommended to wear sunglasses after surgery. The patient will be examined by the attending physician whi will provide recommendations for further management of the condition; after that, the patient may go home. Then the patient will be supervised by the attending physician at the clinic according to the custom schedule of postoperative examinations.

Recommendations for early postoperative period:

  • avoid excess eyestrain;
  • avoid rapid bending and heavy loads;
  • avoid subjecting your eyes to extreme temperature differences;
  • avoid rubbing operated eyes;
  • avoid excess consumption of alcohol 2 to 4 weeks after the surgery.

There are no restrictions as to watching television, reading, writing and eating any food.

For a quicker recovery, your attending physician will prescribe you suitable eye drops and make a supervision schedule. Generally, patients are examined on the day following the surgery, then a week later, a month later, and three months later, or more frequently, if required. It depends on the specifics of the patient’s visual apparatus.

Your attending physician will provide all recommendations for the recovery period. You will recover quicker if you follow these recommendations as fully as possible.
