We would find them hidden on a pre-op bed or on a bedside table in postop. To solve the problem, we purchased eyeglass cases with our logo on them for patients to use. If, for example, patients need their glasses to read and sign consents in pre-op, we'll put their glasses in a case and place the case inside the bag holding their clothes and belongings before they're wheeled into the OR.
