My mom received this drop when she complained of extream dry eyes. She was told by her doctor to use this drop 2-4 times a day.

I used a few days before surgery for glaucoma and couple of weeks after surgery to prevent infection. As far as I know, it worked. I also had the white film on my bottom lid which I had to remove. My question is did this make anyone else gain weight that they could not lose?

Comment:
I had cataract surgery on my right eye in November, and the left eye in December. I was given Omnipred to use. Four drops daily for four weeks. After I stopped using the drops my eyes became sensitive to light and the eye became extremely painful. I am still using the drops in both eyes. I am down to one drop a day in the right eye and the pain and sensitivity is back. I had to go back to two drop ... Show Full Comment
