Tobramycin-Dexamethasone Versus Tobramycin-Dexamethasone Plus Ketorolac After Phacoemulsification Surgery
Tobramycin 0.3% - Dexamethasone 0.1% Versus Tobramycin 0.3% - Dexamethasone 0.1% Plus Ketorolac Tromethamine 0.5% After Phacoemulsification Surgery. A Randomized Trial

This randomized controlled trial compares two regimens of topical therapy:

  • tobramycin 0.3% - dexamethasone 0.1% (TobraDex®, Alcon), one drop four times/day
  • combination of tobramycin 0.3% - dexamethasone 0.1% (TobraDex®, Alcon), one drop four times/day, plus Ketorolac tromethamine 0.5% (Acular®, Allergan), one drop three times/day. The topical treatment is administered for 28 days after phacoemulsification.

Patients are independently assessed by two ophthalmologists. On day 28, patients are evaluated for

  • corneal edema
  • conjunctival redness
  • anterior chamber reaction. Moreover, the cases necessitating continuation of treatment are compared in the two groups on day 28 and 42.
