These drugs work by blocking the body’s natural chemical reactions to certain injuries
and ailments that cause irritation, swelling and sometimes pain. The itching and
swelling of the eyes caused by seasonal allergies and other irritants are often
treated through the prescription of Acular Eye Drops. In addition, this drug may
be used to treat eye swelling experienced as a result of cataract surgery.
Acular Eye Drops are beneficial for the prescribed treatment, but also have potential
side effects. They may cause temporary blurring of vision, especially immediately
after application. This may be accompanied by short term stinging or burning. A
physician should be contacted immediately if these symptoms do not dissipate quickly.
If eye pain, significant vision problems or a skin rash appear, call a doctor. These
drops may also mask the symptoms of eye infections, so particular attention should
be paid to any evidence of a potential eye infection. Some ingredients in these
drops may also have an adverse impact on soft contact lenses. If the drops are applied
while the lenses are in the eye, the lenses may be permanently discoloured. It is
advised that contact lenses be removed prior to use of the drops and kept out of
the eye for a minimum of 15 minutes following application of the drops. To
buy Acular Eye Drops from a Canadian pharmacy, a prescription will be required.
