Surgery /Patient Education

One of life's greatest fears is facing surgery. Many people avoid examinations because of this. However, most times they don't need an operation! The delay in getting an exam prolongs their anxiety.

The basic fears are:
The unknown—Education is the key to allaying the fear of the unknown. We want you to know as much as you can about your condition and treatment—the best surprise is no surprise.

Finances—We make sure your treatment is affordable before it begins.

Quality of care and caring treatment—While we have the most up-to-date equipment and techniques we also realize that people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.

A relative with a bad result—Recent advances in eye care treatment have greatly increased both the safety and good results of the care.

Pain—Today's ophthalmic surgery is completely painless.

Waiting—We keep the time from your decision to the date of the procedures to a minimum. Once it's over with, you'll wonder why you worried.

We address these problems for you. Our surgical counsellor will put you at ease, answering unasked questions you might have and your family members may watch your cataract procedure through the window at our new Ambulatory Surgical Center.
