Hyperalgesia, or increased sensitivity to pain, occurring at the second operation in staged bilateral cataract surgery is well documented.

The details of a study by Seoul National University Hospital recently published to clinicaltrials.gov will evaluate the effectiveness of pretreatment with gabapentin after the first operation on reduction of pain at second operation. Gabapentin is a drug originally developed to treat epilepsy that is currently used to relieve pain.
