Abstract

An online survey of members of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery indicated a strong preference for preoperative and postoperative topical antibiotic prophylaxis, with most surgeons favoring latest generation topical fluoroquinolones. A significant percentage of surgeons reported being concerned about the risks of homemade intracameral antibiotic preparations, and there was a strong desire to have a commercially available antibiotic approved for intracameral injection. This is reflected in the fact that 77% of respondents were still not injecting intracameral antibiotics, but 82% would likely do so if a reasonably priced commercial preparation were available.
