Acular LS Eye Drops Information
Acular LS Eye drops are a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug or NSAID. Its work is to reduce inflammation and pain in the eye. It as well minimizes symptoms of seasonal allergies and itching, pain, swelling, stinging and burning due to eye surgery. It is therefore given to people who suffer from seasonal allergies and those recovering from cataract or corneal refractive eye surgeries.
How To Use
To use Acular LS, wash your hands first. Then tilt your head back slightly. Pull your lower eye lid down slightly to create a tiny gap. Hold the dropper tip above this eye. Squeeze out a drop into the eye and close it for two minutes. Press your finger to the corner of the eye for a minute to ensure the medication remains in the eye. Don’t exceed the number of drops your doctor has asked you to use. Wait five minutes to use a different eye medication. If using after surgery, use one eye drops bottle in one eye only. Then wait ten minutes or more to apply a different eye medication.
Acular LS side effects include the following:
- Blurred vision

If you notice other severe side effects, call the eye doctor. These include sings of an allergy, vision changes, white patches in the eye and severe eye pain among others.
