The Day of Surgery

  • If you require parking, there is a garage located on Fort Washington between 164th and 165th Street. On the day of the surgery, your parking ticket will be validated to obtain a reduced parking fee.
  • When you arrive at the Eye Institute, please proceed to the Admitting Office on the 4th floor (Room 427).
  • Our staff in the admitting office will assist with checking you in and process any required paperwork.
  • Our nursing staff will then orient you to the process and prepare you for your surgery.
  • Your family member/escort will be asked to wait for you in the family and visitor waiting area on the 4th floor until your surgery is finished. They will then be called and will be permitted to stay with you during your post-operative recovery period.
