Detached retina surgery 2 years ago resulting in blindness. But the eye continues to be red and painful.Started this drug 3 days ago resulting in severe itching, hives,and wheezing. Finally settled down after repeated doses of anti-histamines. Dr.says there shouldn't be pain of the eyeball and the drug doesn't cause that kind of reaction. One dose and I'M itching again.

I have been using this medication for 3 months after my cornea surgery. The biggest problem I am having is I am extremely itching and am getting raised red bumps over my body (legs, chest, arms). Must take Benadryl 3-4 times a day. Very annoying

Comment:
Following SLT surgery for Glaucoma in my right eye, I was prescribed with these drops.. I was told to use for 4 days only. Had nasty sting in the eye following surgery, next day felt much better. Feel completely normal after 5 days. No after effects after drops so I guess they did what they were supposed to do.
