Choosing Wisely®
Medical tests before eye surgery: When you need them - and when you don't

Generally, cataract and other eye surgeries have low risks of complications or problems, such as heart attacks. Even so, many healthy people get a routine set of tests before eye surgery. In these cases, the tests don't change the surgery or make it safer.

The tests themselves are very safe, but they can cause false alarms. This can lead to anxiety and more tests, needlessly delaying your surgery.

Ways to Save

Having this surgery performed at a hospital with an overnight stay will usually be the most expensive option. Discuss with your physician if this surgery can be performed as an outpatient procedure (no overnight stay).

There are two types of outpatient facilities: 1) outpatient surgery performed at a free-standing Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC), which is usually the best value and 2) hospital-based outpatient surgery, which is typically less expensive than inpatient care.
