Presbyopia Correction Surgery is performed on an out-patient basis and takes only a few minutes. In Dr. Sayegh's hands, the surgery takes 8 to 10 minutes and is painless both during and after the surgery. No needles, no stitches and no patches are associated with the procedure. Patients are free to return home to rest in comfort and avoid the inconvenience and expense of a hospital stay. In most cases, daily activities such as driving and reading can be resumed the next day.
After the surgery, you'll be given a short time to rest. Then, the very same day, you can go home. Within the next 24 hours, your doctor will probably want to see you for an evaluation. Drops will be prescribed to guard against infection and help your eyes heal. For a few days, you may need to wear a clear shield, especially at night, to prevent you from rubbing your eyes.
