Often times after surgery patients are required to apply drops that are needed to treat inflammation and serious infection. Some patients don’t want to deal with messing with daily drops and the overall cost of the prescription.
If your particular surgery allows, we may be able to apply the medication needed during surgery which eliminates the need for applying eye drops throughout the day. That being said, some patients will still require drops due to the postoperative requirements of some specialized lenses. The focus, in that case, would be to formulate a prescription plan to help reduce the expense and occurrence of drops needed after surgery.
