Inflammation of the eye is painful and always inconvenient when your vision is impaired and you are unable to drive, read, work on your computer, wear make-up, or even bear being in a lit room or enjoy the sunny outdoors. You need to have a doctor or ophthalmologist examine your eyes to see if the inflammation is caused by infection, injury, or an allergic reaction.
Pred Mild Eye Drops may be prescribed to reduce the inflammation and relieve other symptoms that include pain, swelling, itching, and watering. The active ingredient of Pred Mild Eye Drops is Prednisolone Acetate, a corticosteroid medicine that can be administered as directed by your doctor for the time period recommended as long-term use of corticosteroids may cause damage. Once instilled in the affected eye or eyes, Prednisolone Acetate will work within certain cells to inhibit the release of inflammatory substances and provide respite from your symptoms.
Whether you have allergies, an infection, or an injury that involves your eye or the eyelid, your body’s immune system will believe that there is a threat to cause harm and as part of the immune response, inflammation is produced and sent to the affected area. Other substances are also directed to the site to start the healing process. Inflammation, however, signals more inflammatory chemicals and substances and it become is vicious cycle.
Administering Pred Mild Eye Drops to decrease the inflammation does not stop the healing process, but will decrease the production of more inflammatory chemicals. As the inflammation begins to clear up, your other symptoms of watery and itchy eyes will also be reduced. To stop the ingredients of Pred Mild Eye Drops from draining into your tear ducts and spreading systemically, instill the drops while you press a clean finger against the inside corner of your eye to block their path. The ingredients of Pred Mild Eye Drops will stay on your eye where it’s needed and will be completely absorbed within 2 minutes.
Ask your doctor about any harmful effects of using Pred Mild Eye Drops while you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or if you are breast feeding. Explain your medical history to your doctor and list any Rx drugs you currently take or use, as well as OTC meds, herbal remedies, and any dietary or vitamin supplements to determine if Pred Mild Eye Drops are safe for you to use.
If you have been using Pred Mild Eye Drops for an extended period of time, do not stop using it suddenly. Ask your doctor the best way to ‘step-down’ safely to avoid the risk of serious side effects. Remove any contact lenses before instilling Pred Mild Eye Drops and wait at least 15 minutes before reinserting them as they can become discolored permanently from the contents of this medicine. You should not drive or attempt any activities until your sight has cleared from the Prednisolone Acetate.
