Pre and Postoperative Care at GulaniVision

Preoperative Care:

May we request you to follow the Gulani Vision Institute’s preoperative protocol in our dedicated quest to increase safety and accuracy while maximizing your vision outcomes. We look forward to providing you with a memorable Gulani Vision experience.

Postoperative Care:

Since Dr. Gulani’s surgeries and innovative technologies are uniquely designed to each patient, as also among the full spectrum of vision corrective surgeries there are specific postoperative protocols and care that you must follow to safely your best vision outcomes.

Laser Postoperative Care:

Since Dr. Gulani’s No-Cut, No-Blade Laser Techniques don’t involve pressure or pain in addition to the personable and comfortably paced ambiance at our Institute most patients don’t even take a Valium and undergo the procedure with numbing drops only. The evening of surgery we suggest that you rest with both eyes closed and start your eye drop protocol. Preferably lay on your back while sleeping with your shield on the operated eye/eyes. In certain cases you will have a prescription for a Loratab tablet so you can rest that night (take on a full stomach with no restriction on diet). You will be seen the next day by Dr. Gulani and over the next 5 days you may experience a roller coaster of vision. During this time you are advised to avoid digital screens (computer, telephones, TVs). On day 5 most patients have healed so their bandage contact lens may be removed by Dr. Gulani and if you have traveled back home you or your eye doctor can do the same. You may now resume daily activities at this point based on your vision recovery. Throughout this time you will continue your eye drop protocol as explained along with artificial tears. Vision may continue to move with most patients back to work within a week. Based on your individual case you will be given a follow-up protocol with Dr. Gulani if local and with your local eye doctor if out of state or out of country to keep us abreast of your progress. You can of course contact us at anytime in the future because you are truly now part of the Gulani Vision Family worldwide.

Cataract Postoperative Care:

Due to Dr. Gulani’s elegant and technologically advanced cataract surgery in addition to the personable and spa-like ambiance of our Cataract Surgery suite in our Institute most patients don’t even take a Valium and undergo the procedure with numbing drops only. The evening of surgery we suggest that you rest with both eyes closed and start your eye drop protocol. Preferably lay on your back while sleeping with your shield on the operated eye/eyes. You will be seen the next day by Dr. Gulani to monitor your progress, based on your unique conditions your vision will be recovering over the next week. You will again be seen on day 10 because Dr. Gulani likes to see how you have landed with the first eye and uses this as an opportunity to remeasure prior to proceeding with your second eye surgery. No lifting or bending for 7-10 days to avoid undue pressure since no-stitch is a highlight of Dr. Gulani’s artistic technique. Throughout this time you will continue your eye drop protocol as explained along with artificial tears. Vision may continue to move with most patients back to work within a week. Based on your individual case you will be given a follow-up protocol with Dr. Gulani if local and with your local eye doctor if out of state or out of country to keep us abreast of your progress.

INTACS Postoperative Care:
