Adverse Reactions
In controlled clinical studies, the most frequently reported ocular adverse events following cataract surgery were capsular opacity, decreased visual acuity, foreign body sensation, increased intraocular pressure, and sticky sensation. These events occurred in approximately 5 to 10% of patients.
Other ocular adverse events occurring at an incidence of approximately 1 to 5% included conjunctival edema, corneal edema, dry eye, lid margin crusting, ocular discomfort, ocular hyperemia, ocular pain, ocular pruritus, photophobia, tearing and vitreous detachment.
Some of these events may be the consequence of the cataract surgical procedure.
Non-ocular adverse events reported at an incidence of 1 to 4% included headache, hypertension, nausea/vomiting, and sinusitis.
