Making an Appointment
Please remember that a referral from an optometrist or family physician is required for a consult with a cataract surgeon.
Your surgeon will determine how urgent your case is after consultation. Not every patient waits the same length of time and more urgent cases are given a higher priority so do not wait as long as less urgent cases.
