About Eye Drops after Eye Surgery

It is very important to remember to follow your post op instructions, especially when it comes to using your eye drops. Regardless of what kind of eye surgery a patient has, it is imperative to listen to the technicians and doctors and use the eye drops as prescribed by your physician.


Steroid drops are important in the healing process and help fight infection. Antibiotic drops also help fight infection. Nonsteroidal drops are important in reducing and preventing post surgical swelling. All of the eye drops recommended for use by your physician serve a purpose, and it’s very important to remember to use them exactly as prescribed. All of the physicians at EMG give written post op instructions on exactly how to use each eye drop. A doctor or technician will also discuss all of the drops with you before surgery. If you have any questions about how to use your post op medications, please contact your physician.
