Flomax increases the risk of 'floppy iris syndrome".  Eye surgeons don't stop the flomax as has a lasting effect.  Also if the person tells the surgeon then special drops are used to prevent floppy iris syndrome.

What "special" eye drops.  I had cataract surgery right eye, and I am on Flomax.
I was on Prolensa and Prednisolone eye drops.
The drops are used at the time of surgery, not after surgery
