Ophthalmic day surgery
For a day surgery procedure, you will need a referral from either a private ophthalmologist or from an ophthalmologist from the outpatient clinic. We perform eye surgeries mainly under local anaesthetic, if necessary under general anaesthetic. As a day surgery patient, you will return home the same day after surgery.
The procedures performed under anaesthesia are performed in collaboration with Y2 day surgery.
