Dr. A.S. Desai :

Hello, Welcome to Just Answer

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Are you available for chat now?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Do you have ye symptoms such as redness or pain or watering in the operated eye?

Customer:

No

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Well in that case there is no problem and you can continue using the prednisolone acetate eye drops as prescribed but after shaking the bottle.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Since it is a suspension the bottle needs to be shaken.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Since you do not have any symptoms, there has not been any ill effect of having used the eye drops without shaking the bottle.

Customer:

What a relief, anything else that I should or should not do?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

No, just remember to shake the bottle well for about 5-10 seconds so that there are no precipitates settled at the bottom of the bottle.

Customer:

Thanks

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Continue to use all the eye medicines as prescribed by your eye doctor following the surgery. You are most welcome.
