• What drops should I use before surgery?


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

    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.
