3-In-1 Custom Formulated Eye Drops For Cataract Surgery From ‘Imprimis Rx’.

Prior to my initial cataract surgery (the day before Thanksgiving in 2020) I would talk to those that had had the surgery to get a feel as to what I should expect. Suffice to say I was a bit uneasy about my eyes cut open under local surgery. Everyone I spoke to was categorical in assuring me that I would not feel a thing & that it was a piece of cake. They were RIGHT. It is pretty miraculous. The other thing they all mentioned, without fail, was the eye drops that you had to use post-surgery & how vital it was not to forget using the drops. All those that I spoke had been given multiple bottles of drops & they had to use drops from each of the different bottles.

That, however, was not the case with I. I only used ONE bottle. SOME of the doctors at OCB, i.e., Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston, including the OUTSTANDING Dr. Theodor Sauer who was my surgeon, had started using a specially formulated 3-in-1 compound to make it easier on us. And it sure was. I did not have to contend with multiple bottles. Just one bottle. This specifically formulated compound, however, was only available from ‘Imprimis Rx’ — via prescription (& it was NOT covered by insurance). Imprimis Rx was a JOY to deal with. Some of nicest folks I have ever dealt with. Extremely helpful & responsive. In the end, given that I ended up having three surgeries (two on my right eye), I needed 3 bottles.

The drops worked well — from what I can tell. They would sometimes sting but would then settle down & prove to be extremely soothing. I confessed to the doctor that I was concerned that I was getting addicted to them. I know I used more that I should. But, that is all in the past. To be honest, my last bottle is not empty, & it sits on my bathroom counter, BUT I do not use it. I use over-the-counter eye drops as I am now supposed to use.

I am sharing this for those of you who might be getting cataract surgery in the future. You should definitely ask about these 3-in-1 drops from your surgeon. They could make the whole pre- & post surgery that much easier.

      Thank you. It proved to be a great experience. Dr. Sauer of OCB is beyond amazing & you folks were a great help. ‘Amy U.’ was outstanding. Made sure that my bottles got to me on time. Great service. Glad that Dr. Sauer uses you. But, I gather, from the questions I would get in the surgery center, that there are some who still have to use multiple different bottles.
