Should We Be Administering Besivance or Azasite Via DuraSite After Phaco?

An article in AJO compared Besivance, Azasite (both using DuraSite vehicle) and Cipro when injected into rabbit eye anterior chambers. It seems the Durasite blocks the trabecular meshwork and may be toxic. The authors advise not using these drops after clear corneal surgery unless a suture is placed. I don’t know anybody who uses anything but Zymar and Vigamox post-op.
