• Are eye drops always necessary before cataract surgery?


    Question:

    Are eye drops always necessary before cataract surgery? I did not receive instructions or prescriptions from my doctor about pre-surgery eye drops.


    Answer:

    No, they are not always necessary. Many ophthalmologists prescribe them routinely, but others do not use them. If you did not receive instructions, you should clarify this with your ophthalmologist.
