Should my friend be concerned about accumulation of fluid in her eye after cataract surgery? She believes the fluid may result from eye drops she's taking. Those are: bromday, predforte, and vigamox.

Should my friend be concerned about accumulation of fluid in her eye after cataract surgery? She believes the fluid may result from eye drops she's taking. Those are: bromday, predforte, and vigamox.

It's a shame that you have to go online to ask this question for your friend instead of having her call her surgeon directly and resolving the issue in minutes. In my practice, all surgical patients are given my email and cell phone number. That is what i would want if i were the patient! ...Read more
