During the preoperative evaluation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions
about your surgery. You will sign consent forms acknowledging that you have been
informed about the risks and benefits of surgery.
Below is the History and Physical Examination form, which you are responsible for
taking to your primary care physician or pediatrician to be completed within
30 days before your surgery date. You can bring this form to your preoperative
evaluation visit or fax it to (310) 825-0151.
The Preparing for Your Surgery brochure provides useful information
for patients having surgery at the Jules Stein Eye Institute.
You will be contacted by the Anesthesia Department 1-3 days before your surgery,
between 3 and 6 pm, when you will receive pre-operative instructions as well as
the time of your surgery.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact a surgery coordinator at (310)
267-3937 ext. 5.
