Corticosteroids Ophthalmic

Why has my veterinarian prescribed this medicine?

Corticosteroids are used in the eye to stop inflammation. They are most commonly used to treat conjunctivitis, episcleritis, scleritis, pannus (chronic superficial keratitis), and eosinophilic keratitis of the cat. The most common corticosteroid eye preparations are prednisolone and dexamethasone.
