Answer

Corticosteroids, Ophthalmic

These agents decrease inflammation. Corticosteroid treatment often is initiated only after consultation with an ophthalmologist.

Prednisolone 1% (Pred Forte, Omnipred)

Strongest steroid of its group and best choice for uveitis. Decreases inflammation by suppressing migration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and reversing increased capillary permeability.
