Cataract Surgery with Few Eyedrops!

There are several advancements in cataract surgery that may or may not be in the best interest of a patient, dependent on the circumstances the patient presents with and the protocols of the surgeon performing the surgery. One alternative is TriMoxi, a combination of Triamcinolone and Moxifloxicin intended for intraocular injection at time of cataract surgery. By using this medication, the amount of preoperative and postoperative medications-including eye drops-are markedly reduced, making the patients less dependent on medication and saving significant money as some of the postoperative drops are no longer required. Most patients only require one drop once a day, far less than the standard regimen of three different drops used in combination throughout the day for several weeks. One observation that some patients have postoperatively is a day of blurred vision and floaters, which usually disappear after one week.
