Abstract: PurposeTo examine the anti-inflammatory efficacy and tolerance between preservative-free dexamethasone (DEX) and diclofenac (DICL) eye drops, and their combination following cataract surgery. MethodsA randomized, double-blind, prospective single-centre study with 189 eyes of 180 patients undergoing routine cataract surgery. Laser flare meter measurement and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography imaging were conducted before surgery and at the 28-day postoperative visit. Clinical characteristics, surgical parameters and assessment of postoperative symptoms were recorded. ResultsPreoperative flare was 9.00.6pu/ms and central retinal thickness (CRT) 269.6 +/- 1.9m (mean +/- SEM). On day 28, flare was 22.1 +/- 2.9 pu/ms for DEX, 17.4 +/- 2.5pu/ms for DICL and 13.0 +/- 1.6pu/ms (p ConclusionDiclofenac (DICL), as well as the combination of DEX and DICL, were superior to DEX monotherapy in minimizing CRT change and the incidence of PCME. Combination medication showed no added value compared to DICL monotherapy in uneventful cataract surgery.
