DropLess Cataract Surgery

DropLess Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is arguably one of the safest surgeries an individual will have in their lifetime. However, the biggest issue for patient satisfaction is the unavoidable need for multiple eye drops for a period of 3 to 4 weeks that both prevent infections and reduce inflammation. Issues that arise include:

  • High Cost – Depending on their prescription coverage, patients may have to pay upwards of $350 per Eye
  • Confusion – Associated with frequency of drops. Some drops may need to be used once a day while another may be four times!
  • Difficulty – In administrating the drops

The dropless regimen on the other hand is a compounded mixture of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory deposited directly within the eye following cataract extraction and lens implantation. This medicine is absorbed by the eye over a month, negating the need for additional medical eye drops 92% of the time. And eliminating the need of out-of-pocket costs.

Fraser Eye Care was the First in the State of Michigan to perform dropless cataract surgery and to date has performed over 6000 dropless cataract surgeries.

This option is available to all qualified cataracts patients. Some patients may not be good candidates for “No Drop” cataract surgery. If you or someone you know is considering cataract removal, call us at (586) 296-7250.
