“Dropless” Cataract Surgery – Should all cataract surgery be done this way?
Return to Session
Mr. Lauren J. Shatz (Presenter)
Speaker Session Topic
“Dropless” cataract surgery is a technique which eliminates or minimizes the use of topical eye drops in the setting of cataract surgery. The following questions will be explored: 1) Why adopt “Dropless” Cataract Surgery in my practice? 2) Does current evidence support elimination of topical antibiotic prophylaxis in favor of intracameral antibiotics in the setting of cataract surgery? 3) Does current evidence support methods that could replace topical steroid use in the setting of cataract surgery? 4) Does evidence support elimination of routine topical NSAID use in the setting of cataract surgery?
