Your surgical care,
For eye surgery patients, medicated eye drops are a critical part of your treatment. Before surgery, these drops can help prepare your eye and prevent any infections. After surgery, drops can help your eyes heal. Taking these drops is very important—your doctor may need to postpone or cancel your surgery if the drops are not taken properly.
However, many patients need to take multiple drops both before and after surgery, sometimes on different schedules. These complicated drop regimens can be challenging to follow.
OPDrops® simplify your surgical care by combining multiple medications into a single bottle of eye drops. Customized for you and your procedure, OPDrops simplify your drop regimen, making it easier to stay on track with your medications. Traditional drop regimens can include up to 200 drops per course—with OPDrops, you only need to take 45 to 60.
To help make the process even easier for you, we’ll ship your OPDrops directly to your home, and our team is available to answer any questions you may have during treatment.
To fill a prescription:
Remember to follow the instructions that came with your prescription. If you have any questions, please call us at 833.716.0861.
When you get your prescription, make sure the box has not been opened or damaged. If you think there is something wrong with your prescription, call us right away.
OPDrops are best stored at room temperature, before and after the bottle has been opened. Keep them in a secure place where you can get to them easily.
Follow our instruction guide to help you administer the drops. You can also watch this video from the American Academy of Ophthalmology. If you’re having trouble administering the drops yourself, we suggest having someone help you.
You may notice a slight stinging sensation after using OPDrops. It should go away quickly. If it does not, call your doctor.
Since OPDrops are made just for you, they are not covered by insurance. However, the price of OPDrops is often less than your copays would have been for other surgical drop regimens.
OPDrops are not available at retail pharmacies. OPDrops are custom surgical eye drops made in our state-of-the-art pharmacies.
Often, patients who choose to use a retail pharmacy will need to get multiple medications and administer the drops multiple times per day. OPDrops are easier and more convenient—you need fewer bottles, and fewer drops.
OPDrops typically contain several medications, such as an antibiotic, a pain reliever and an anti-inflammatory, all in one bottle. You may also receive a bottle of dilating drops,
