IV-free cataract surgery

Tower Clock Eye Center, in keeping with the modern standard of care, is the first ophthalmology practice in Northeast Wisconsin to offer IV-free cataract surgery. The practice of IV-free cataract surgery is common in many ophthalmology centers across the U.S., and has widespread use in both Europe and Canada.

IVs often cause increased levels of anxiety in patients, sometimes causing even more than the surgery itself. IV-free cataract surgery reduces much of the anxiety associated with surgery. After a screening process, most patients make good candidates and are eligible for the IV-free procedure.

IV-free cataract surgery offer patients:

  • Reduced anxiety
  • Faster medication absorption
  • Medication leaves the system sooner
  • No bruising
  • No IV-related pain
  • Reduced pre-operative times
  • More one-on-one time with your doctor
  • The same safety measures as traditional IVs

The same medication administered through an IV is given in the form of a lozenge that goes under the patient’s tongue. The medication slowly dissolves and begins working in minutes. The medication is as effective as an IV, and takes the edge off allowing a patient to relax before and during surgery.

To learn more about IV-free cataract surgery at Tower Clock Eye Center, or to make an appointment, please call us at (920) 499-3102.
