Aquapred Eye Drop

Prescription Required

Overview

Introduction

Aquapred Eye Drop belongs to a group of medicine called steroids. It is used for the treatment of redness and swelling in the eyes caused by infection or allergy. It provides relief from redness, itchiness and soreness by stopping the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation.

Never use Aquapred Eye Drop if the seal is broken before you use it for the first time. Wash your hands before using it and shake the bottle well before each use. Make sure you remove contact lenses if you wear them and wait for at least 15 minutes before putting them back. Do not stop using this medicine without asking your doctor. Stopping the medication before time may allow the bacteria to continue their growth, which may result in return of the infection.

The most common side effects of Aquapred Eye Drop are burning sensation, irritation, or blur the vision temporarily. If your vision is blurred or you have other changes in sight for a time, do not drive until your vision is clear.
