- Phagocytic migration
- Capillary dilation
- Fibrin deposition
- (all of the acute inflammatory response)
- Scar formation
- Deposition of collagen
- Capillary proliferation
Shake well before using. Instill one to two drops into the conjunctival sac two to four times daily. During the initial 24 to 48 hours, the dosing frequency may be increased if necessary. Care should be taken not to discontinue therapy prematurely.
Using corticosteroids for a prolonged period of time could damage the optic nerve from the development of glaucoma. It could also cause formation of posterior subcapsular cataracts or defects in fields of vision and visual acuity.
Secondary ocular infections have an increased risk, as prolonged use may suppress the immune response.
