Thank you for choosing Specialty Eye Institute for your cataract evaluation.
During this appointment you will undergo several pre-surgical measurements and tests to determine your eye health. In order to obtain the most accurate readings please use preservative free artificial tears 2-3 days prior to your appointment. We recommend using 1 drop in both eyes 4-6 times per day. A well lubricated eye is beneficial for the necessary testing.
You can find artificial tears at any local pharmacy.
Some of the brands available at the local pharmacy include: Preservative Free Systane, Blink Tears, Refresh, Soothe, and TheraTears.
What to Expect at your appointment:
- Your eyes will be dilated at your appointment, please bring sunglasses
- It is recommended you bring a friend or family member due to dilation and surgical details discussed during your visit

- If you wear contacts, you MUST discontinue wearing them 15 days prior to your appointment (please contact us to reschedule if they have not been removed timely)
