What to expect at Liberty Cataract Center
Liberty Cataract Center is staffed by registered nurses, medical assistants, certified scrub technicians, CRNA’s, and other professionals who are trained in the latest ophthalmic procedures.
Our experienced surgeons and professional patient-focused staff will help make the patient's surgical experience both comfortable and confident with the services provided. Liberty Cataract Center holds the distinguished certification of the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), ensuring that quality care and personalized service are continually delivered. To qualify for the select accreditation, rigid standards must be met and maintained in patient safety, emergency equipment, anesthesia, instrumentation, policies, procedures and quality control.
Surgical procedures performed at the ASC include but are not limited to: cataract surgery, YAG laser procedures, SLT laser procedures, ARGON laser procedures, corneal transplants, glaucoma procedures, blepharoplasty, ptosis repair, and other ophthalmic cosmetic procedures.
After a patient is scheduled for procedure, a Liberty Cataract Center RN will contact you by phone prior to your procedure regarding your arrival time, surgery time, special instructions and other information. You will receive information as to when you must stop eating, drinking and chewing gum before your surgery. It is very important to follow these instructions to avoid delay or cancellation of surgery.
You will need to arrange for a responsible adult to act as your caregiver. This caregiver will:
Accompany you to surgery.
Receive your discharge instructions
