Cataract Surgery Preparation

Typically your patient arrives for surgery day, and it may be routine to prep them with IV sedation for cataract surgery, so you can devote 100% of your time to the cataract procedure.

There are approximately 3.6 million cataract surgeries a year.

  • How long does it take to administer anesthesia for your patients?
  • What are your challenges with administering IV anesthetic?
  • What are your typical costs associated with anesthesia administration for cataract surgery?

I love the predictable level of sedation

The MKO-melt eliminates the discomfort and anxiety associated with IV needles while at the same time providing a more comfortable operative experience through its steady and eff­ective sedation
