Study Summary

This trial is testing whether a single antibiotic and steroid drop given at the time of surgery can replace the current postoperative eye drop regimen for cataract surgery patients at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for patients at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital who need cataract surgery in both eyes, are over 18 years old, and have been approved by an ophthalmologist. It's not for those with prior eye surgeries, certain retinal conditions within the last year, simultaneous bilateral cataract surgery needs, combined other eye procedures on the same day, or allergies to specific antibiotics.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests a 'dropless' postoperative care approach against the standard multiple-eye-drops regimen after cataract surgery. Patients will receive a one-time intraocular antibiotic and subconjunctival steroid during surgery instead of several post-surgery eye drops.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects may include reactions to the intraocular antibiotic or subconjunctival steroid such as increased eye pressure or inflammation. However, these risks are generally considered low.
