• What drops should I use before surgery?


    Question:

    What “real tears” are good to use before cataract surgery? The doctor said to get OTC real tears.   


    Answer:
    The doctor probably meant “artificial tears” and there are many brands.  Most OTC (over-the-counter) brands are well-tolerated. Ask your ophthalmologist for samples or recommendations. There are also tears without preservatives, which are better when being used more than six times per day.
