Dropless™ Cataract Surgery in Nashville, TN
Patients who undergo cataract surgery are required to use special prescription eye drops before and after the surgery. Dropless™ cataract surgery eliminates this requirement. Jeffrey D. Horn, MD, of Vision for Life offers Dropless™ cataract surgery for the residents of Nashville, Murfreesboro and the surrounding communities of Tennessee.
What is Dropless™ Cataract Surgery?
Anti-inflammatory and antibiotic eye drops protect your eyes and keep them healthy when you have cataract surgery. The drops must be used before and after the procedure, and this may present an inconvenience for many patients. You may forget to use the eye drops, or you may not appreciate having to incorporate the application of the drops into your daily schedule. At Vision for Life, we offer Dropless™ cataract surgery so that your eyes are only treated one time with a long-lasting medication that offers the same benefits of traditional eye drops.
Benefits of Dropless™ Cataract Surgery
Dropless™ cataract surgery uses the medication Tri-Moxi that is put in your eyes on the day of your cataract surgery. Your eye gradually absorbs the medication over the next 30 days to provide anti-inflammatory and antibiotic benefits. Dr. Horn prefers Dropless™ cataract surgery because it:
- Reduces side effects associated with eye drops
- Decreases risks
- Saves patients money
- Represents a lower risk for swelling of the retina and infections
- Eliminates the need for eye drops
- Simplifies your post-operative care
What Should I Expect from Dropless™ Cataract Surgery?
During your procedure, Dr. Horn performs Droples™ cataract surgery by placing the Tri-Moxi medication in your eyes. All patients who receive Dropless will use an NSAID for 4 weeks post operatively and take Diamox to help keep the eye pressure down.
Is Dropless™ Cataract Surgery Right for Me?
We recommend Dropless™ cataract surgery only for upgraded lenses/ packages — not basic or standard lens. The ease of use and other benefits make it beneficial to your recovery from cataract surgery.
