What to Expect
- Strabismus surgery is a same-day procedure that is performed under general or local anesthesia, as required.
- The patient spends only a few hours in the hospital with minimal preoperative preparation
- The surgery takes anywhere from about 30 minutes to two hours.
- You’ll go to a recovery room after surgery. Our team will keep monitoring your vital signs until you go home.
- Because the surgery does not require cutting major muscles, patients typically experience less pain after surgery and require less pain medication.
