Abstract
Vous et votre médecin avez parlé des raisons pour lesquelles il est nécessaire d’enlever votre œil ou le contenu du globe oculaire. Ce dépliant explique comment prendre soin de vous en toute sécurité. L’énucléation est le terme médical qui désigne le retrait ou l’ablation de l’œil. Le terme médical utilisé pour parler du retrait du contenu du globe oculaire en conservant la couche externe (coque sclérale ou sclère) est éviscération. Les deux interventions entraînent la perte permanente de l’œil. Ce dépliant explique ce qui se passe avant et après la chirurgie, le port d’une chemise d’hôpital, les médicaments, les soins à la maison ainsi que vos émotions. Vous y trouverez de plus des informations sur les prothèses oculaires (œil artificiel) ainsi qu’une liste des symptômes nécessitant une consultation médicale immédiate.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Eye Removal" pamphlet 0582. Your health care provider has talked with you about why your eye or the contents of your eye must be removed. This pamphlet will help you learn how to safely care for yourself after your procedure. The medical term for eye removal is enucleation. The medical term for removing the contents of the eye and leaving the outer coat (sclera) behind is evisceration. Both procedures mean permanent loss of the eye. This pamphlet explains what will happen before and after your surgery, including wearing a dressing, medication, care at home, and emotions you may have. Information about having a prosthesis (artificial eye) is given. A list of symptoms that require immediate medical attention is provided.

Abstract
Your doctor has recommended Botox® injections for your blepharospasm (rapid eye blinking) or facial muscle spasms. Botox® blocks the chemicals that cause the spasms in your muscles. Botox® is not a cure. It helps relieve your symptoms for about 3 months. This pamphlet explains what Botox® is and how it works, how to get ready for your appointment, what will happen during and after the treatment, and side effects. The French version of this pamphlet 1783, "Injection de Botox®", is also available.

Abstract
On parle d’une cataracte quand le cristallin de votre œil devient trouble ou opaque avec le temps. Le cristallin se trouve dans une capsule (ou enveloppe). Pendant la chirurgie, le cristallin opaque est enlevé, mais la capsule demeure en place. Une lentille intraoculaire est placée à l’avant de la capsule. Jusqu’à la moitié des capsules des personnes qui ont subi une chirurgie pour la cataracte deviendront brumeuses elles aussi. Quand cela se produit, la vision devient trouble. Cette opacité peut être traitée au moyen d’un laser YAG. Le laser YAG est utilisé pour faire une ouverture dans la capsule (capsulotomie), comme lorsque l’on fait un trou dans une pellicule d’emballage en plastique. La vision est généralement plus claire 1 à 2 journées après le traitement. La présente brochure explique comment se préparer, ce qui se passe pendant le traitement et à quoi s’attendre après. On y présente aussi une liste des complications possibles.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 0464, “YAG Laser Capsulotomy”. A cataract is when the lens in your eye gets cloudy over time. The lens sits in a capsule. During surgery, the cloudy lens is removed, leaving the capsule in place. A lens implant is put in front of the capsule. In up to half of patients who have had cataract surgery, the capsule also becomes cloudy. When this happens, vision becomes blurred. This cloudiness can be treated with a YAG laser. The YAG laser is used to make an opening in the capsule (capsulotomy), like making a hole in a piece of plastic wrap. Vision is usually clearer 1 to 2 days after the treatment. The pamphlet describes getting ready for treatment, what happens during, and what to expect after. A list of possible complications are given.

Il s’agit notamment de ce qui suit : contrôle de la douleur, exercices pour respirer profondément et tousser, exercices pour les pieds et les jambes, soins de l’incision, activité physique, repas, bourrelet de cicatrisation, suivi avec le chirurgien et symptômes nécessitant des soins médicaux. Vous trouverez également des cartes pour aller aux différents hôpitaux où les chirurgies de la hernie sont effectuées (QEII, Windsor et Truro).
This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 0592, "Hernia Surgery as an Outpatient". This pamphlet is about hernia surgeries. A hernia forms when an outer wall of muscle breaks open or tears. This allows organs (such as a loop of bowel or tissue) to fall through the opening. Different types of hernia surgery are described. Topics include what to expect before surgery, on the day of surgery and after surgery at home. Some after surgery topics include pain control, deep breathing and coughing exercises, foot and leg exercises, care of your incision, physical activity, meals, healing ridge, follow-up with your surgeon and a list of symptoms that need medical attention. Maps to the different locations where surgery is performed (QEII, Windsor and Truro) are provided.
