OMIDRIA provides an improved patient experience

OMIDRIA significantly improved postoperative day 1 visual acuity across a wide age range1

Improved uncorrected visual acuity on day after surgery was greater for age ranges 62-68, 69-75, 76-92 (OMIDRIA vs Epinephrine)

Of the 641 eyes of 389 patients who underwent cataract surgery, 260 eyes were administered phenylephrine 1.0%/ketorolac 0.3% and 381 eyes received epinephrine in the irrigation solution intraoperatively.1

Immediate improvement in postoperative visual acuity may be attributed to the anti-inflammatory properties of OMIDRIA.1

Single-center, retrospective case review (N=641)1

A single-center, retrospective case review of patients undergoing cataract surgery who received OMIDRIA or epinephrine.

All patients received a topical NSAID regimen for 3 days before surgery and topical tropicamide 1.0%, cyclopentolate 1.0%, and phenylephrine 2.5% on the day of surgery.1

OMIDRIA reduces pain during and after surgery

  • The ketorolac component of intracameral OMIDRIA provides higher concentrations compared to topical drops2,3

  • Fewer drops are needed for cataract surgery, so there is a less demanding routine for you, your staff, and your patients2

  • OMIDRIA is easy to integrate into your surgical routine4

VAS=visual analog scale.

During surgery there was a 50% reduction in VAS pain scores with OMIDRIA vs epinephrine. After surgery patients are 50% more likely to be pain-free up to 12 hours after surgery.

Prospective, single-masked, comparative study (N=60)5

In a prospective, single-masked, comparative study, cataract surgeries were performed by a single surgeon.

All patients received preoperative topical lidocaine gel for anesthesia, administered 2-3 times 15 minutes before surgery.5
At the start of the surgery, all patients received 0.5 mL of intracameral preservative-free lidocaine 1%.5

Prospective, randomized, clinical trials (N=821)6

In a prospective, randomized study, patients with cataract surgery were enrolled in 2 clinical trials.

Preoperative treatments were standardized for all patients and included moxifloxacin 0.5% (Vigamox) treatment for at least 3 days before surgery, mydriatic treatment with topical phenylephrine HCl 2.5% plus tropicamide 1.0% three times in the 30 minutes before surgery, and lidocaine or tetracaine for local anesthesia on the day of surgery.6
