concerned about elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP) and possible glaucoma. What is considered "long term use" for this steroid eyedrop?
Long term use usually means ongoing (for at least a few years)...
Episcleritis is irritation and swelling (inflammation) of the episclera, a thin layer of tissue covering the sclera of the eye.
The condition usually disappears without treatment in 1 - 2 weeks. Treatment with corticosteroid eye drops may relieve the symptoms faster.
Tobramycin is an antibiotic eye drop. It is not a steroid eye drop.
It has no effect on IOP.
