Dropless Cataract Q&A With Dr. Kessler

Can any cataract patient have Dropless Cataract Surgery?

Many patients will be able to have Dropless Cataract Surgery, but not everyone will be eligible. There are some circumstances where drops will still be needed, such as patients who are Diabetic and need to use NSAID drops after surgery. Dr. Kessler will review your specific details with you prior to surgery and help determine if Dropless Cataract Surgery is the right option for you.

Why are antibiotics drops no longer needed after Cataract Surgery?

Rather than using these drops after Cataract Surgery, a small amount of antibiotic fluid is placed in the eye at the end of surgery.

Is this as effective as taking antibiotic drops to prevent infection?

Yes, clinical studies have shown this to be more effective at preventing infections than eye drops.

Do I have to pay extra to have the medications during the cataract surgery?

No, there is no extra charge for the antibiotic or anti-inflammatory (steroid) given during surgery.
