    Patients undergoing routinecataract surgery may not achieve the best possible vision following theoperation if they develop retinal thickening, called macula oedema. This isreported to occur in up to 12% (12 out of 100 people may develop maculaoedema). A drop called ketorolac has been shown to reduce the occurrence ofmacula oedema but the studies have been small. We are carrying out thisresearch to investigate whether treating people with ketorolac preoperatively for 3 days and postoperatively for 3 weeks reduces the devlopment of maculaoedema.
