The preoperative exam is designed to identify medical problems that would adversely affect your health or the outcome of the surgery. Being in optimal health is the best way to avoid complications.
Your Primary Care Physician, who is familiar with your medical problems and medications, should whenever possible, perform this exam. At this time HMC is performing preoperative exams for eye surgeries ONLY. If you cannot access your Physician for your preoperative exam for eye surgery, please bring a list of your medications and any records in your possession to either HMC.
