The Pre- and Post-Cataract Surgery Eye Drop That Proves Less Is More

Care After Cataract Surgery

At Eye Centers of Florida, we’ve made a commitment to providing the best visual outcomes for our patients. We’re dedicated to making your cataract surgery experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible, from your very first appointment, to your surgery, and through your recovery.

Therefore, we’re proud to offer Iprismis Rx LessDrops® for patients who choose to have their cataract surgery with the team of experts at our Accredited SurgiCare Center in Fort Myers. While we still offer alternative cataract surgery eye drops, LessDrops® allows us to provide our patients with a convenient option for their pre- and post-cataract surgery care regimen.

A Cataract Surgery Drop that Saves Time and Money

Just before and for a few weeks after cataract surgery, your eye surgeon will recommend you use special, prescription eye drops. These drops are designed to fight infection and reduce inflammation, helping ensure that your eyes are both prepared for surgery and stay healthy after your procedure.

Currently, the industry standard is to recommend a combination of three separate eye drops. At Eye Centers of Florida, you have a choice between the three-drop regimen and LessDrops®, two solutions that differ in cost and application but are equally powerful.

Using LessDrops® Means Using Fewer Eye Drops

The standard recommendation for cataract surgery eye drops requires a patient to use three separate products. LessDrops® is equivalent to three products in one. It’s recommended that you apply LessDrops® only three times in one day, which for many patients is preferable to using three separate products four times per day, each.

LessDrops® Costs Less Than Alternatives

The average total cost for the three separate eye drops is $497. A single bottle of LessDrops®, on the other hand, costs only $120. With this being said, it’s important to note that LessDrops® are just as powerful as the more expensive solution.

Convenient, Quality Cataract Surgery Eye Drops

At Eye Centers of Florida, we’re always striving to give our patients the best eye care services possible. We appreciate how important it is to provide our patients with multiple options for their care – and we certainly recognize the value in prescribing LessDrops®.

We carry LessDrops® in our Eye Centers of Florida offices, meaning that, if this is the eye drop for you, there’s no need to worry about making a special trip to the pharmacy.
