Fluorometholone is indicated for the treatment of specific ophthalmic conditions resulting from inflammation or injury. The medication exerts its therapeutic effects by alleviating symptoms such as edema, erythema, and pruritus. It pertains to a pharmacological class referred to as corticosteroids.

Uses and Dosage

Adhere to a consistent schedule by using fluorometholone ophthalmic at approximately the same time(s) each day. Strictly adhere to the prescribed dosage and frequency of cromolyn eye drops, avoiding any deviations such as excessive or reduced usage without proper medical guidance.

Following initiation of treatment, you should experience an improvement in your symptoms, including relief from eye itching, tearing, redness, and discharge, within a few days. However, up to six weeks of consistent treatment may be necessary to achieve optimal results.

If your symptoms fail to improve or worsen during the course of treatment, contact your doctor for further guidance and assessment.

To administer the eye drops, the following steps should be followed:

  1. Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Do not allow the dropper tip to touch the eye or any other surface, and ensure that it is kept clean.
  3. Tilt the head back and pull down the lower lid of the eye using the index finger to form a pocket.
  4. Hold the dropper as close to the eye as possible without making contact, and brace the remaining fingers against the face.
  5. Squeeze the dropper gently to instill a single drop in the pocket created by the lower eyelid while looking upwards.
  6. Remove the index finger from the lower eyelid and keep the eye closed for 2-3 minutes while tilting the head down.
  7. Apply gentle pressure to the tear duct using a finger.
  8. Use a tissue to wipe off any excess liquid from the face.
  9. Wash hands to remove any residual medication.
