Surgery and recovery

Surgeries on children's eyes are performed under general anesthesia. A child should arriv for surgery after the recommended period without eating and drinking with laboratory tests that are necessary for general anesthesia. Before the procedure, the anesthesiologist talks to the parents about the general health of the child, history of other diseases and goes through laboratory results. Only after being examined by an anesthesiologist, the child is ready for the procedure.
