Eye Drop Medication Changes for Cataract Patients

Eye Drop Medication Changes for Cataract Patients

In keeping you up to date on the care your patients receive at Barnet Dulaney Perkins Eye Center, we would like you to know that we have made some changes to the list of medications we utilize during the cataract surgery perioperative period.

Topical steroid
We are now prescribing Durezol (difluprednate ophthalmic emulsion 0.05%) in place of prednisolone acetate 1.0%.

Topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)
We are now prescribing Ilevro (nepafenac ophthalmic suspension 0.3%) in place of Nevanac (nepafenac ophthalmic suspension 0.1%).

We have made these changes in an effort to provide patients with the highest quality, most cost-effective eye drops.

Both medications are specifically indicated for use following cataract surgery. Durezol has been shown to reduce ocular pain and inflammation effectively and rapidly. Ilevro has been shown to have similar safety and efficacy to Nevanac with less frequent dosing.

Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at (866) 742-6581.
