You may have been referred by your Optometrist for surgical care at our practice and ambulatory surgery center. Dr. Cavanaugh performs the surgery but if you prefer, your local eye doctor can assume the postoperative care at the one-day, one-week or one-month juncture. Your local doctor communicates your post-operative results to Dr. Cavanaugh. If there are any concerns, Dr. Cavanaugh may ask to see you personally. Your local Eye Doctor is paid a portion of the global fee for surgery to compensate for the post-operative visits they do for you. There is no extra cost to you.
