Biflace Eye Drop


Overview

Introduction of Biflace Eye Drop

Biflace Eye Drop is a steroid. It is used in the treatment of inflammation in the eyes caused by infection or allergy. It is used to reduce swelling, itching and soreness after any eye injuries or eye surgery. It is used in low doses, directly in the eyes to relieve the symptoms.

Biflace Eye Drop is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by the doctor. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before using it and wait at least 15 minutes before putting your lenses back in. Refrain touching the tip of the dropper to any surface to avoid contaminating the eye drop. You should not discontinue using the medicine unless your doctor tells you so. Stopping the medication before time may allow the bacteria to continue their growth, which may result in return of the infection.

Using Biflace Eye Drop may cause burning sensation, irritation, or blur the vision temporarily. In most cases, it usually resolve quickly. However, if the irritation persists or worsens, contact your doctor.
