• What OTC eye drops can I use after my cataract surgery?


    Question:

    What over-the-counter eyedrops can I use after my cataract surgery? I used the required prescription dosage before and right after surgery.


    Answer:

    If the eye is red or sore, sensitive to light, very irritated or getting blurry then you need to see your cataract surgeon for the appropriate treatment. If you are having mild symptoms of foreign body sensation, burning and/or tearing and your vision is stable and not worsening you can try any over-the-counter lubricating tear drop.
