Dr. Pendleton performs cataract surgery at the North Coast Surgery Center, less than one mile from our office.
Founded in 1977, North Coast Surgery Center is the region’s premier cataract surgery center. Dr Pendleton is an investor / owner of the center and has served as its Medical Director since 2012. North Coast Surgery Centers’s managing partner, Surgical Care Affiliates (SCA) brings operational expertise, and the center consistently receives some of the highest ratings nationwide in patient safety and comfort.
Our same compassionate care continues at the North Coast Surgery Center. We’ll work hard to ease your anxieties.
Please arrive at the surgery center at your designated time to finalize paperwork, relax and get comfortable in the environment. Your No Stitch, No Patch, No Injection surgery will only be performed on one eye during your appointment. You will remain awake during the procedure, but the local anesthetics given prior to the surgery will put you into a “twilight state” and will minimize any discomfort you may experience; many patients have no memory of surgery at all.

After surgery, we will have you relax in the post-op area and eat a small snack. Because you have been sedated, a friend or family member must drive you home after surgery and should stay with you for about three hours.
We will provide you with an eye shield to wear while you are sleeping for one week to protect your eye as it heals. It’s normal to experience blurry vision and eye irritation for the first few days. Continue to use your eye drops as prescribed to minimize discomfort; Dr Pendleton will tell you when to stop at your post-operative visits.
Cataract surgery on your second eye can be done after the first eye has healed (usually 2 weeks later).
