Analgesics requirement after anterior segment surgery
A questionnaire was designed to evaluate patients' postoperative symptoms and need for analgesics after cataract surgery and/or trabeculectomy. During the first week and the second week of the study period 5.7% and 7.4% of the patients reported having had postoperative pain. Patients provided with paracetamol after the operation took the tablets not only because of pain, but also for a number of other reasons. Patients not provided with paracetamol, and in need of analgesics, had access to painkillers at home.
