Day of surgery information

On the day of your surgery, please plan to arrive at the time agreed to with your surgery coordinator. Use the map provided here on the website for complete directions. There is ample free parking located in the garage next to the entrance of our ASC.

At Woolfson Eye Institute’s ASC, an anesthesiologist specialized in outpatient anesthesia will discuss with you in detail the recommended anesthesia plan he or she will be administering for your surgery and answer any questions you may have regarding that plan on the day of your surgery.

Postoperative guidelines

You will be discharged on the day of surgery. Please arrange to have an adult accompany you who will be available during your procedure, able to assist you during your discharge from the ASC, and able to provide you transportation home.
