• Will my aunt’s surgery be successful if she refuses eye drops afterwards?


    Question:

    My disabled aunty had cataract surgery but is refusing to let anyone put in the eye drops. Will the operation still be successful without her using them?


    Answer:

    Of course, it is best that all drops are used to prevent infection and inflammation. If she is not using the drops I suggest you call her doctor ASAP and see what else can be done. If you can teach her to put her own drops in, maybe she would accept that?
