Answer

Corticosteroids

Topical steroids occasionally are needed to help suppress inflammatory changes in the cornea.

Prednisolone acetate (Omnipred, Pred Mild, Pred Forte)

Decreases inflammation and corneal neovascularization. Suppresses migration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and reverses increased capillary permeability.
