Pharmacologic interventions for mydriasis in cataract surgery

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows: Primary objectives: To evaluate the effectiveness of various methods of pupillary dilation among people who underwent phacoemulsification for cataract extraction. Comparisons of interest include topical mydriatics versus intracameral mydriatics, topical mydriatics versus depot delivery systems, and intracameral mydriatics versus depot delivery systems. Secondary objectives: To assess and compare the incidence of intra- and postoperative cardiovascular and ocular complications associated with the use of these methods of pupillary dilation. We will also compare the cost-effectiveness of these methods during routine cataract surgery.
