Answer

Answer

Anterior segment inflammation is another common complication of LPI. It is thought to be due to the release of prostaglandins. [13] The inflammation is usually mild and can be successfully treated with topical steroids. Prednisolone acetate 1% 4 times a day for 5-7 days is prescribed.
