Scheduling Procedures

After visiting your Advanced Eye Institute ophthalmologist and determining which surgical procedure is right for you, you will be contacted by Thibodaux Laser and Surgery Center within 1 business week to schedule your pre-operative appointment and to discuss your surgery date.

Pre-Operative Appointment

You will arrive to Thibodaux Laser and Surgery Center, located in the medical plaza in Thibodaux, at your designated appointment date and time. This is an opportunity for you to familiarize yourself with our location, and allows us to make sure we have all of the necessary information that we need, prior to your procedure. Please bring your photo ID, insurance card(s), and any eye drops you are currently taking as well as any eye drops that were prescribed for you at your surgical consult visit. Your surgery date will be confirmed, as well as, pre-op guidelines and your eye drop schedule to follow prior to your surgery.

The day before your surgery, a staff member will call you with your arrival time for the actual procedure.

Day of Surgery

Please follow the procedure instructions that were given to you at your pre-op appointment. (Procedure Instructions can also be found under Patient Info). Following Surgery, a nurse will discuss post-operative instructions regarding rest, medications, and restrictions. Patients are discharged from Thibodaux Laser and Surgery Center under the care and supervision of a responsible adult over the age of 18, who can drive the patient home. Patients will not be allowed to go home in a taxi unaccompanied. In the event of any difficulties or complications, call Advanced Eye Institute or Thibodaux Laser and Surgery Center immediately.

Thank you for the opportunity to allow us to take care of you!
