Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: Primary objectives: To evaluate the effectiveness of topical NSAIDs (alone or in combination with topical corticosteroids) versus topical corticosteroids in controlling intraocular inflammation after uncomplicated cataract surgery and answer the question: is there sufficient evidence for the utilization of NSAIDs alone or in combination with corticosteroids to control postoperative inflammation after cataract surgery? This review will address the comparative effectiveness of these drugs in controlling inflammation in patients who underwent phacoemulsification for cataract extraction. Secondary objectives: To assess postoperative best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) as well as patient-reported discomfort, symptoms, or complications (such as elevation of IOP) with the use of postoperative NSAIDs or corticosteroids. We also will evaluate the cost-effectiveness of using topical NSAIDs alone or in combination with topical corticosteroids.
