DROPLESS CATARACT SURGERY
Dropless Cataract Surgery Comes to Bluffton, SC!
Cataract surgery has come a long way. Gone are the days of patches and lengthy stays at the hospital. While surgery itself has become a breeze, the largest patient complaint is the eye drop regimen that accompanies surgery. With a new surgical approach, dropless cataract surgery eliminates the need for eye drops!
Cataract surgery has become arguably one of the safest and easiest surgeries an individual will have in their lifetime. However until now, the eye drops associated with the post-operative period following surgery was unavoidable. While patient satisfaction is high after surgery, the most complaints stem from these eye drops. Concerns regarding drops vary from high costs, to confusion associated with the frequency of drops (some drops may need to be used once a day, while another may be four times!), to the difficulty of actually administering the drops.
During dropless cataract surgery, a compounded mixture of antibiotics and a potent anti-inflammatory is deposited directly within the eye following cataract extraction and lens implantation. This mixture is then released throughout the post-operative period- effectively and efficiently protecting the eye from infection and inflammation.
Because of this new surgical approach, all previous complaints with post-operative eye drops are resolved.
High costs- This compound is considered a component of surgery, so it will be covered by your insurance. Gone are the days of spending additional money on cataract surgery!
Confusion- By applying these medications at time of surgery, your post-operative period becomes more than manageable. Gone are the days of remembering how many drops to administer!
Human error- Now you can rest assured that your eye is receiving the proper amount of these medications, as it is being placed directly within your eye by your surgeon. Gone are the days of wondering if that drop made it in!
We are proud to offer the cutting-edge and effective approach that is dropless cataract surgery.
