The article discusses research on the effectiveness of one controlled-release intraoperative injection of triamcinolone and ciprofloxacin in controlling inflammation after cataract surgery. It references a study published in the 2009 issue of "Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science." The study involved 135 patients who were randomly assigned to two groups. It was found that the combined therapy proved comparable to conventional prednisolone and ciprofloxacin.
