Benefits of Kedex Eye Drop

In Treatment of Eye pain

In Treatment of Allergic conjunctivitis

Allergic conjunctivitis is swelling and redness in the eye caused by an allergy to pollen or dust. It also causes itching, burning sensation as well as watery eyes. Kedex Eye Drop gives relief from these symptoms and makes you feel better. Use it 2-3 times a day for atleast a week or as prescribed by the doctor. Your symptoms might improve after using Kedex Eye Drop. However, make sure to complete the full course of treatment.

In order to prevent allergic conjunctivitis, it is advisable to stay inside and keep doors and windows closed when the pollen count is high.

How Kedex Eye Drop works

Kedex Eye Drop is a combination of two medicines: Ketorolac and Dexamethasone. Ketorolac a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and Dexamethasone is a steroid medicine.

Quick tips

  • Kedex Eye Drop is prescribed for the treatment of allergic conjunctivitis and eye pain after any eye surgery.
  • Kedex Eye Drop should usually be used twice a day (in the morning and the evening). If your symptoms are particularly severe, your doctor may suggest you use them up to four times a day.
  • Apply pressure on the corner of the eye (close to the nose) for about 1 minute, immediately after putting the medication. This will prevent the medication from draining out. Try not to blink or rub your eye.
  • Do not wear contact lenses until your infection clears up or your eyes heal completely after surgery.
  • Your eyes can become more sensitive to sunlight than usual post eye infections or surgery. Wearing sunglasses may help to prevent this.
  • Along with using Kedex Eye Drop, give a warm compress to your eyes to get relief from itching and burning sensation.
