My mother recently had an adverse reaction to the preoperative drops given to prep her for her cataract surgery.
She is allergic to cortisone and very soon after I put the first compounded drop (which contains predisolone sodium phosphate, gatifloxacin, and bromfenac) she became weak, trembling, heart and blood pressure increased dramatically and she said she thought she was going to pass out. Her surgeon's nurse said there is no alternative, that one must take a steroid drop to have the cataract removed. She is almost blind in that eye and I read on this site where another person had the same issue...does anyone know if there is an alternative prep or method for someone with sensitivity to this compounded drop or the combined drops? Thanks!
