Eye drops can be used to reduce the swelling or pain in areas of the eye that have been injured; treat dry eye, conjunctivitis, or corneal abrasions; or improve vision by removing debris or foreign objects from the surface of the cornea. However, some drops contain antibiotics, steroids, or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) drugs, such as aspirin, and they are used to treat infections in the eye, such as herpes zoster and sinusitis, as well as to treat eye infections caused by bacteria and fungal organisms, such as keratitis. They are commonly used in the eye, nose, and throat.
Eye drops are usually inserted into the eye prior to surgery. They can be a source of shock and may cause a decrease in heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen levels, and blood flow, leading to seizures or cardiac arrhythmias. They can also create an allergic reaction. In the event of a blood clot in the eye, an eye drops can cause anaphylactic reaction, resulting in a sudden drop in blood pressure. In rare instances, an eye drops can cause a corneal hemorrhage (blood in the cornea) which could lead to permanent blindness if it was not promptly reversed. Some eye drops are very irritating. To prevent this problem, rinse the eye drops regularly with warm water or a few drops of a saline solution before using it.
Another common side effect of eye drops is the production of a chemical which causes an allergic reaction which can be life threatening or even fatal if inhaled. Avoid eye drops if you have asthma, allergies to any of the ingredients, or if you have a weakened immune system.
Treatment for eye drops
There is no cure for Eye Drop or Eye Drop Disorder, but there are methods that are used to help the eye drop treatment and that can provide long-lasting, effective treatment.
It is important that eye drops are not taken orally. Ocular pain and swelling can occur after ingesting oral eye drops, so it is best to use them in drops that have been thoroughly mixed and shaken prior to use. There are a few different types of eye drops that are available, including the following: Bixis, Cyclizine, Eucerin, Floxin, Glypro, and Molid. Most eye drops come in 5.0% or 6.0% concentrations of the drops' active ingredients, but many also contain lower concentrations such as 1% or 5% or even 1.05%.
Eye drops can cause headaches, nausea, dizziness, or visual disturbances. Some cases also cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation.
Eye drops can irritate the eyes. However, in many cases this irritation can be minimized with eye drops that have a mild or neutral fragrance, or at the least the smell does not smell bad so long as the amount is moderate. A slight odorous component, such as peppermint leaves, rose petals or other flowers, can help mask the smell of eye drops.
Eye drops can irritate the eyes. This has been a problem for quite a few years now amongst many different brands of eye drops and products.
