    Transzonular approach to antibiotic delivery during cataract surgery is preferable

    Delivery of medications at time of surgery better for cornea, eliminates compliance concerns

    A transzonular/intravitreal delivery of antibiotics during cataract surgery can help surgeons better manage “the four Cs,” according to Cynthia Matossian, MD, FACS.

    The four Cs are:

    • Cornea;

    • Compliance;

    • Cost;

    • Callbacks.

    “For me, delivering the antibiotic/steroid combination in the anterior vitreous with a transzonular approach is the way to go,” said Dr. Matossian, Matossian Eye Associates, Doylestown, PA. “Delivering the prophylactic product at the time of cataract surgery helps eliminate many headaches.”
