Ask your eye doctor about DEXYCU

Inflammation may be a result of eye surgery.

Cataract surgery involves a cut (incision) and often results in inflammation. This may cause discomfort, delay recovery, and lead to other complications. Managing inflammation after cataract surgery is critical to preventing serious issues.

Current post-cataract surgery treatment requires multiple drops.

Traditionally, post-cataract surgery eyedrop dosing regimens may include steroid, antibiotic, and NSAID drops. This can include 70+ steroid drops over 4 weeks with some regimens.

NSAID=nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug.

DEXYCU is the first and only FDA-approved treatment of its kind.

It’s a corticosteroid used to reduce inflammation that happens after cataract surgery. DEXYCU is not an eyedrop and it’s not something patients have to manage themselves. Although DEXYCU was designed as a one-time treatment to eliminate the need for corticosteroid eyedrops to help control inflammation, some patients may still need them.

DEXYCU is delivered via a needle and placed directly into the eye by your eye doctor at the end of surgery.

DEXYCU uses a patented system to help treat inflammation from inside your eye.

The medicine, a corticosteroid called dexamethasone, is slowly released over time where it’s needed. Its effects may last up to 30 days.
