Patients with history of α-blocker usage: a side by side OMIDRIA/No OMIDRIA
OMIDRIA® is added to ophthalmic irrigating solution used during cataract surgery or intraocular lens replacement and is indicated for maintaining pupil size by preventing intraoperative miosis and reducing postoperative ocular pain.
OMIDRIA must be added to irrigating solution prior to intraocular use.
OMIDRIA is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.
Systemic exposure to phenylephrine may cause elevations in blood pressure.
Use OMIDRIA with caution in individuals who have previously exhibited sensitivities to acetylsalicylic acid, phenylacetic acid derivatives, and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or have a past medical history of asthma.
The most commonly reported adverse reactions at ≥ 2% are eye irritation, posterior capsule opacification, increased intraocular pressure, and anterior chamber inflammation.
