Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Yes indeed this is concerning.
Less amount of anesthetic and pain medication may be used on this assumption.
That can cause more pain sometimes.
However, in most cases, this may not be a problem as your doctors will monitor your level of anesthesia during the procedure and also pain perception.
It is better to tell the truth to your doctors for your best interest still.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable and authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-mysticdoc/
I believe that in your situation, given that almost all Eye Surgeries are done under Local Anesthesia (LA), the oxycodone prescription (which you are not taking) will not be an issue.
There is usually no specific titration of doses done for LA, so they will just check whether your eyes are anesthetized properly, and then proceed with surgery.
I agree with Dr. Basu, that it is always better to tell the medical specialists about relevant medical history so that any potential complications can be avoided.
