Pat Mailloux Eye Centre

Patients requiring cataract surgery are seen in the Pat Mailloux Eye Centre at Charlotte Eleanor Englehart Hospital of Bluewater Health in Petrolia. The procedures are performed by highly-skilled ophthalmologists practicing in Sarnia-Lambton, using state-of-the-art equipment and supported by highly-qualified personnel.

This is an outpatient clinic and patients can go home after their procedure. Cataract surgery may require anaesthesia, and a short recovery period is necessary which occurs in our day surgery department before discharge from the hospital.

You must have a friend or family member take you home after you are discharged, as it will take some time for your vision to adjust. You will receive instructions on your recovery period.
