Focal Points 2018 Module: Intracameral Medications for Cataract Surgery

Focal Points 2018 Module: Intracameral Medications for Cataract Surgery

Routine intracameral administration of drugs, particularly in association with ocular surgery, really began in the 1990s and has progressed rapidly in the 21st century.

A discrepancy exists between the number of safe, effective drugs in routine clinical use and the number of drugs approved by authorities such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

This Focal Points module reviews available agents, modes of administration and the state of current knowledge about their safety, efficacy and use.

Complete this module to:

  • Discuss the various types of intracameral agents available for cataract surgery globally and in the United States.
  • Summarize and compare the available intracameral prophylactic antibiotics.
  • Summarize and compare the available intracameral dilating preparations.
  • Summarize and compare the available intracameral postsurgical anti-inflammatory agents.
