3 Types of Eye Drops You Need After Surgery

We recommend purchasing one from each category below. In general, a preservative-free product is always preferable. These will come in individual single-use packets and are higher priced. We have also listed a cost-effective alternative with acceptable preservatives to shop from. 

Night Time Eye Ointment 

Directions: To be placed in the eye at night for the first one to three days post-op. Ointments protect the eye during sleep but tend to blur vision.

Thick Eye Gel

Directions: After the first three days post-op, we recommend switching to a thick water-based gel. These gels do not blur vision as much as the ointments, but still gives eyes the much needed hydration.
