Ketorolac is indicated for short-term management of moderate to severe postoperative pain. Concerns about the high incidence of reported side effects led to restriction in its dosage and maximum duration of use. Maximum duration of treatment should not exceed 5 days for tablets (per package insert), or 2 days for continuous daily dosing with intravenous or intramuscular formulations. The ophthalmic formulation can be used instead of steroidal anti inflammatories in cases where a raised intraocular pressure (glaucoma) is to be avoided.
However, you could please seek more info from a pharmacist/doc who may have prescribed the med, take care.
