In recent years, evidence to support the use of alternative methods for delivering antibiotics and steroids the eye after cataract surgery has grown, while the need for added coverage with prescription eye drops has increasingly been questioned. Dropless cataract surgery delivers the drugs into the anterior vitreous after the posterior chamber IOL has been implanted in the capsular bag.  This combination antibiotic- anti-inflammatory formulation is considered safe and eliminates the need for patients to use expensive eye drops after cataract surgery.  This also helps assure compliance and convenience for the surgery patient.  It is also less confusing for patients who tend to have a hard time remembering the drop schedule that tends to follow cataract surgery. Having to use eye drops can be a tremendous barrier for a patient, especially to those that do not have a support system.
