How Fml Eye Drop works

Fluorometholone belongs to a group of medicines called synthetic corticosteroid (glucocorticoid). Fluorometholone binds to its receptors and controls the production of certain chemicals that mediate inflammation in the body, thereby inhibiting the inflammatory reactions (such as swelling, fibrin [type of protein involved in clotting process] deposition, capillary dilatation, phagocyte [large white blood cells that can swallow and digest microbes and other foreign particles] migration)..
