Precautions are limited to those normally associated with the ophthalmic surgical procedure being performed.
There may be transient increased intraocular pressure following surgery because of pre-existing glaucoma or due to the surgery itself. For these reasons, the following precautions should be considered:
- OCUCOAT (hydroxypropylmethylcellulose) should be removed from the anterior chamber at the end of surgery.
- If the postoperative intraocular pressure increases above expected values, appropriate therapy should be administered.
