Our Skyvision Centers eye surgeon, Dr. Darrell White, spoke at the quarterly meeting of the Cleveland Ophthalmological Society yesterday afternoon. The COS is the oldest regional ophthalmic group in the United States. Dr. White addressed the issue of treating Dry Eye and other ocular surface diseases as part of the Advanced Refractive Cataract Surgery process.
Dr. White went on to say that each pre-op patient who shows any evidence of tear film abnormality undergoes a full work-up, including Tear Osmolarity. As part of their peri-operative treatment they may take either Restasis or Azasite in order to increase their comfort and speed their visual recovery*.
