Updated on 2 July 2022


Antibiotics are commonly utilized to reduce the bacterial population of the eye prior to surgery with the assumption that this reduces the risk of endophthalmitis, although it is not clear if this actually occurs. This study will investigate the use of Hypochlorous Acid, a commercially available over the counter (OTC) medication to see if this will reduce the bacterial population prior the cataract surgery.
