  • Keep contact lenses out for 48 to 72 hours prior to surgery unless otherwise instructed.
  • No make-up on the day of surgery and men should have face shaved.

  • Arrange for a driver on the day of surgery and for your post-op appointment the next day.
  • After your surgery, plan on going home for the duration of the day and on resting
  • Payment is due on the day of your procedure.

  • Pagers and/or cells phones cannot be brought into the surgical suite
  • Make sure you EAT before surgery
  • If an enhancement is needed using the laser , there is a royalty of fee $150 or sometimes $300.  This pays for the key card to operate the laser; there are no extra surgical services
  • Three days prior to surgery, use Johnson’s baby shampoo to wash your eyelids twice a day, and use artificial tear drops three times a day.
All procedures and one day post-op follow-ups will be done at the McHenry office.
