Answer

Corticosteroids, Ophthalmic

Minimize the activity of inflammatory cells and formation of granulomas. Used in symptomatic patients and commonly provides symptomatic improvement.

Prednisolone acetate 1% (Pred Forte)

Decreases inflammation by suppressing migration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and reversing increased capillary permeability. DOC for lesions involving the anterior segment.

Prednisolone ophthalmic (Delta-Cortef, Econopred)

Decreases inflammation by suppressing migration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and reversing increased capillary permeability. For ocular lesions not responsive to topical steroids.

Dexamethasone ophthalmic (Maxidex)
