Flomax

This is the trade name for tamsulosin, an oral medication used for urinary problems in men with enlarged prostates.  This medicine helps by relaxing smooth muscle in the urinary track, but it also relaxes the smooth muscle in the iris, causing floppy iris syndrome. This creates challenges during cataract surgery.
