How Long After Cataract Surgery Can You Use Eye Drops
What drops to use after cataract surgery? The following drops should be applied to your operated eye only, starting the morning after surgery. Chloramphenicol One drop, four times Antibiotic (store in fridge) a day for 2 weeks, then stop. Dexamethasone One drop, four times Anti- (Maxidex) a day for 4 weeks, inflammatory then stop. Patients are typically directed to use these drops for about a month after cataract surgery to reduce inflammation and swelling in the eye during recovery. During cataract surgery , the eye surgeon removes the cloudy lens of the eye and replaces it with an intraocular lens (IOL) to allow you to see clearly.
