Vitrectomy-Macular Pucker

Does anyone have any experience or knowledge in regards to Bromday eye drops post Vitrectomy/ERM peel surgery?
Is 60 days of drops post surgery too long ?  That is the surgeons "boiler-plate" recommendations, but I read all the warnings on the drops say 14 days max.  =Big difference.

Standard advice might be to "follow the doctors orders", but unfortunately, as we all know, one Doctor's advice may or may not be good advice.

Anyone else have this prescribed for 60 days ?

Bromday is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory that in some instances is used for months even years. THe labeling is a FDA requirement. My opinion is the FDA works against patients and physicians in the USA. Stiffles and slows introduction of new life and sight saving drugs. For the makes to say on the label may be used for longer than 14 days might require 50 million dollars of testing.   Do what your physician tells you to do.

I used a similar eye drop for much longer than 60 days following my second ERM surgery, with no negative consequences.  (Following my first ERM surgery I had such severe inflammation from misplaced sutures that I used a much stronger drop for several months.)  Your ERM (and to a lesser degree the surgery to remove it) caused a lot of inflammation inside your eye, which reduces your acuity and contrast sensitivity.  The purpose of the drops is to eliminate the inflammation before it becomes chronic.  Potential problems resulting from the drops would presumably be detected during your periodic appointments with your retinal surgeon.
