If you are referred by a corresponding ophthalmologist, monitoring can be done at your ophthalmologist’s office the day after the intervention. He can contact us if you want a second opinion.
If you came directly to the hospital, monitoring is done in the consultation area at the ground floor of Building B.
The day after surgery, if you are hospitalized you are seen in the hospital by a doctor before you are discharged. For an ambulatory patient, a visit is usually needed the day after cataract surgery. For other interventions, particularly for simple interventions in young children, there is no consultation the day after surgery . A phone call lets us know if all goes as planned.
Further monitoring is then based on the condition that justified the intervention. In general, for a cataract, a consultation on the eighth day to verify proper healing and the thirtieth day to prescribe glasses are planned. It is then advisable to consult six months after surgery, then every year. Of course, these limits may be shortened or lengthened depending on the evolution.
