PLEASE NOTE: Boston Eye
Surgery & Laser Center requires all patients to be escorted home by a
responsible adult after surgery. There will be no exceptions to this rule. Patients who are scheduled late in the day will be required to have their ride stay in the center during their surgery.
Please arrive at Boston Eye
Surgery & Laser Center at the time requested by the staff. If you will be
unable to make your appointment on time or if you need to cancel, please call
the Center immediately. Your consideration will help our staff provide
efficient care for everyone.
Your procedure will be performed by your
ophthalmologist in one of our operating rooms or in one of the specially
equipped laser rooms. Your surgeon will determine which room is appropriate for
Many, but not all of the procedures performed at
Boston Eye Surgery & Laser Center require the use of local anesthetic
injection done by a trained board certified anesthesiologist. This injection is
all that is needed to fully numb the eye for surgery. Prior to this injection
you will receive a mild sedative to help make you more comfortable.
