Dropless Surgery for Cataract
What Is A 'Dropless' Surgery?
Cataract Surgery had just gotten easier at the American Surgery Center where Dr. Sagun J. Pendse has performed “Dropless” Cataract Surgery. Unlike Traditional Cataract Surgery —which requires a patient to utilize multiple eye drops both before and after surgery, often up to 4 times a day, for 4 weeks or longer, Dropless Cataract Surgery offers our patients the option of having cataract surgery performed so that in most cases they no longer need to use eye drops before or after their cataract surgery experience.
During “Dropless” Cataract Surgery, a medicine called Tri-Moxi* is placed in the eye at the time of the procedure, this medication is absorbed by the eye over the following weeks providing the same benefits obtained in the past by eye drops.
The benefits of “Dropless” Cataract Surgery:
The need for eye drop medication typically used in traditional cataract surgery is eliminated reducing the out of pocket expense of multiple eye drops.
The worry of forgetting to use their eye drops as instructed or the frustration of attempting to instill multiple eye drops is eliminated.
The risk of side effects such as blurred vision, increased intraocular pressure, floaters, etc is reduced by the use of one medication vs multiple eye drops.
