Our doctors work with cataract, refractive surgeons, retinal and other specialists in primary eye care, to provide you with co-managed post-operative care. The frequency of post-operative appointments with your optometrist can vary based on your surgeon, the procedure you had, and your progression to recovery. On average, you are expected to have a total of three follow-up appointments: the following day with your surgeon, and six weeks and ten weeks with your optometrist.
