Dropless Cataract Surgery
Dropless Cataract Surgery in Pikesville, MD
Barenburg Eye Associates is now offering Dropless Cataract surgery. With this procedure, there is no need to use eye drops in the days and weeks following your surgery.
Traditional cataract surgery requires patients to use antibiotic eye drops in the days leading up to surgery, to kill bacteria that could otherwise cause an infection. In addition, patients who have traditional cataract procedures are also required to use anti-inflammatory eye drops after surgery to speed healing, and decrease light sensitivity and discomfort. Generally, patients need to use prescription eye drops for several weeks after their surgery.
Some patients struggle with these treatment requirements; the eye drops may sting, especially early on. The timing and spacing of eye drops can be complicated, and as with any kind of medication, there are significant costs involved.
Dropless cataract surgery is different. With this advanced procedure, you may not need to use antibiotic eye drops before surgery or anti-inflammatory eye drops after surgery. During your dropless surgical procedure, our surgeon will place a combination antibiotic, anti-inflammatory medicine in your eye. Over the course of the month following your surgery, your eye will absorb the medicine, so you don't need to use separate eye drops. Ask our doctors about this option for you!
