What are Ophthalmic steroids?
Ophthalmic steroids are eye drops, gels, or ointments that have been specifically made to be administered into or around the eye that contain corticosteroids (often abbreviated to steroids).
Ophthalmic steroids treat inflammation and relieve symptoms such as swelling, pain, redness, or irritation. Some may be used following eye surgery or an eye injury.
