• Are there drops other than Gatiquin P my wife should use after her cataract surgery?


    Question:

    My wife is using Gatiquin P eye drops after cataract surgery for the last 5-6 years. Is this OK or are there other drops she should use regularly? Her eyes sometimes tear and can be a little painful.


    Answer:

    Gataquin is an antibiotic/steroid combination drop that should not be used long-term unless there is a specific reason. In addition, an ophthalmologist should be monitoring her eye pressure regularly. Ask her ophthalmologist if there are other drops they recommend to treat her symptoms.
