Convenience and Courtesy for our Patients
We offer a same-day cataract surgery option at our Pinehurst/Southern Pines and Greensboro locations as a convenience to patients who are traveling a long distance to our clinic. The choice to have same-day surgery is about convenience and only the patient can determine if same-day surgery is the right option. For patients and family members, this option allows you to only travel out of town for one day.
Understanding Wait Times
Same-day cataract surgery at Carolina Eye Associates means that your paperwork, eye exam, and testing will be completed on the same day of your scheduled surgery. Please note, you may spend up to 7 hours at our clinic on this day. We recommend this option to patients who are traveling long distances and may not want to come multiple times for each appointment. We realize some patients may not be physically able to spend all day in our clinic, and would recommend separate appointments.
For those who live near our Southern Pines/Pinehurst and Greensboro locations, we do not recommend same-day cataract surgery. Having your paperwork, eye exam, testing and surgery appointments on separate days will decrease time spent at our clinic.
