Let's talk about antibiotic resistance: Survey results part 2

September 20, 2017

Ophthalmology Times wants insight on antibiotics and eye infections from clinicians in the field - so the editors asked you. Readers like you helped by completing our survey and telling us about your experience with postoperative infections after eye surgery, if you use topical antibiotic prior to cataract surgery, how you choose antibiotics in a routine surgical prophylaxis, and more. The 118 U.S.-based ophthalmologists who responded were entered into a drawing to win a $200 gift card, with the winner being an ophthalmologist in Houston.
