How does Acular LS work?
Acular LS is a part of the pyrrolo-pyrrole group of NSAIDS, and are specifically indicated for ophthalmic use. It contains active ketorolac tromethamine at 0.4%, preservative benzalkonium chloride at 0.006%, and inactive sodium chloride, edetate disodium, octoxynol 40, hydrochloric acid and/or sodium hydroxide for PH adjustment, and purified water.
It is supplied as a sterile isotonic aqueous solution with an approximate pH of 7.4, with a racemic mixture of R-(+) and S-(-)-keterolac tromethamine. This specific formulation is designed to combat any irritation, swelling, redness, or itchiness that may be experienced due to either seasonal allergies, or as a side effect of eye surgeries. When administered systematically, it has shown anti-pyretic, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic activity and has the ability to inhibit prostaglandin biosynthesis.
Acular LS is used 2 to 4 times a day depending on the reason for usage. It is up to the doctor to give a recommended dosage. When eye drops are applied, the patient should close that eye for 2 to 3 minutes with the head tipped down without squinting or blinking. A finger should be gently pressed into the corner of the eye to prevent the liquid from draining into the tear duct. 5 minutes between drop application is recommended, and if any other eye drops are prescribed, there should be a 10-minute gap between their application.
How long does Acular LS last?
For cataract surgery, eye drops are used 1 day before the operation, and may continue for up to 2 weeks afterward. Corneal refractive surgery will necessitate four times daily use for up to four days after surgery.
Any patients who have demonstrated hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients in Acular LS should not use this product.
