In brief: Prepare?
You can ask questions of your surgeon, staff, and read literature on the internet.
Or do you mean prepare yourself? You should follow your surgeons instructions on pre-op drops, cleansing around the face and eye, do not wear make up. Npo per doctor, and relax, the surgery is usually very quick, safe, and painless with great results.
