Your Surgical Experience

Michigan Glaucoma Specialists are here to support and guide you through every step of the surgical process.  Our staff will make sure that you understand what to expect the day before, the day of and the day after your surgery.  Rest easy knowing our physicians are equipped with the latest technologies, instruments and techniques.

The Day Before Surgery


You will receive instructions regarding medication, food and drink from when your surgery is scheduled.

Carefully follow the fasting instructions you received from our facility. Failure to do so could result in the cancellation of your surgery.

DO NOT consume any alcohol 24 hours before your procedure. This will interfere with anesthesia and may cause bleeding problems.

All medications should be taken on the day of the surgery with a small sip of water unless instructed otherwise by your physician or a member of our staff.

If you have diabetes controlled by oral medication or insulin, please discuss this with the doctor's office at the time you schedule your surgery.

Refrain from using powders, lotions or any kind of cosmetics on the face, eyes, chest and arms.

If you develop a fever, cough or other medical problem, please contact your physician.

Please coordinate transportation to and from the surgery location.
