Dropless Cataract Surgery Q & A

What is dropless cataract surgery?

Dropless cataract surgery is an innovative approach to cataract surgery, offered by the doctors at Advanced Laser & Eye Center of Arizona, where you would not need to use medicated eye drops afterward.

For the traditional cataract surgery, part of your postoperative care includes daily use of eye drops to prevent infection and promote healing. Because of the expense and sometimes difficulty using these drops, many patients struggle with their postoperative care, which may affect the results of your surgery. 

To improve outcomes, the doctors at Advanced Laser & Eye Center of Arizona offer dropless cataract surgery as a surgical option for those patients who may struggle with traditional cataract post-operative care. 

Am I a good candidate for dropless cataract surgery?

Advanced Laser & Eye Center of Arizona provides comprehensive consultations to determine if dropless cataract surgery is the right option for you. 

Dropless cataract surgery is especially attractive if your insurance copays for medications are high, you have arthritis or hate instilling eye drops, or you’re forgetful in taking medicines doctors prescribe for you. The doctors at Advanced Laser & Eye Center of Arizona may not consider you a good candidate for the dropless cataract surgery if you have severe glaucoma or you’re allergic to the alternative medications used for the procedure.

You can count on expert vision correction surgery and trustworthy service at Advanced Laser & Eye Center of Arizona, home of MyEyesToday.com. The team explains your options, including all risks and prices, and answers your questions so you can make the right decision for you. 

What should I expect during dropless cataract surgery?

Dropless cataract surgery is essentially having cataract surgery without having to do drops afterward. Instead of the eye drops you take at home, your eye surgeon administers the needed medication directly to your eye at the time of your surgery. 

The precautions after surgery are the same, which the team at Advanced Laser & Eye Center of Arizona will share with you, but you simply do not have any medication drops to put in afterward. 

The experienced team at Advanced Laser & Eye Center of Arizona is dedicated to providing the most innovative treatments to meet your vision and eye needs and believe dropless cataract surgery will become the standard procedure for cataract surgery.
