DropLess Cataract Surgery

The eye doctors and cataract surgeons at Fraser Eye are dedicated not only to improving eyesight, but also improving overall quality of life for our patients. When patients are diagnosed with cataracts, they are sometimes concerned about treatment options since surgery is the only way to remove cataracts. Fortunately, cataract surgery is one of the safest and most common surgeries performed in America. However, some patients may feel burdened by the aftercare for traditional cataract surgery, which involves using multiple eye drops for a period of 3 to 4 weeks. We are thrilled to offer dropless cataract surgery, an innovative development in cataract care that can make the cataract surgery and recovery process even easier and more efficient.

How Does Dropless Cataract Surgery Work?

Traditionally, patients were prescribed a regimen of eye drops to prevent infections and reduce inflammation after cataract surgery. In the dropless cataract surgery method, a compounded mixture of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory is deposited directly within the eye. Your cataract surgeon will administer this medicine as part of your surgical process, which typically eliminates the need for patients to self-administer any eye drops after surgery. Fraser Eye Care has performed over 10,000 dropless cataract surgeries in Michigan.

What Are The Benefits of Dropless Cataract Surgery?

Dropless cataract surgery has many potential benefits for patients, including:

  • Reduce Postoperative Out-of-Pocket Costs The costs for traditional post-op eye drops, which varies depending on the patient’s needs and prescription coverage, can be upwards of $350 per eye. Dropless cataract surgery can significantly reduce or eliminate out-of-pocket prescription costs.
  • Eliminate Confusion and Save Time Previously, cataract surgery patients were given several eye drop prescriptions with varying dosages to be used at different times of the day.
  • Positive Outcome and Results Patients on a traditional post-op eye drop regimen may have trouble complying with instructions and failure to take all eye drops as directed can lead to complications. Dropless cataract surgery patients do not need to worry about complicated eye drop instructions.
  • No Extra Cost to the Patient There is typically no extra out-of-pocket expense for dropless cataract surgery vs. traditional surgery methods.

Am I a Candidate For Dropless Cataract Surgery?

Most patients who are candidates for cataract surgery are candidates for dropless cataract surgery. Patients with certain medical conditions may have to use one daily drop even with the dropless method. The best way to determine if dropless cataract surgery is right for you is to schedule a consultation with an experienced dropless cataract surgeon.
