    NSAID after Dropless approach shown to lower CME


    Best of both worlds

    Dr. Mahootchi has more than 3 years of experience using TMV during surgery and an NSAID after surgery. “This seems to have the best of both worlds in terms of the benefits of Dropless plus better CME protection,” he said.

    “If using a transzonular steroid (TMV) at the time of surgery, adding NSAID drops may be better than drops alone at preventing CME,” Dr. Mahootchi said.

    Courtesy of Ahad Mahootchi, MDAlthough some people might think the addition of NSAID is expensive, Dr. Mahootchi made an arrangement with a local pharmacy to supply generic ketorolac. It’s been low cost, lasts enough for both eyes, and has had no side effects.

    The tracking of CME rates with this approach is ongoing, Dr. Mahootchi added.
