What is Dexamethasone Ophthalmic Solution?
Dexamethasone ophthalmic solution is a corticosteroid medication indicated for the treatment of steroid responsive inflammatory conditions in the eyes.

Who is it for?
Dexamethasone is for dogs and cats.

What are the benefits?

* Decreases inflammation in the eye
* Convenient easy-dose dropper bottle
* Lessens burning and redness

Dexamethasone ophthalmic solution is prescribed to decrease inflammation due to conditions such as conjunctivitis (inflammation of the lining of the lids) and some types of keratitis (inflammation of the cornea).

How does Dexamethasone Ophthalmic Solution work?
It is a synthetic corticosteroid that that blocks the production of substances that trigger allergic and inflammatory actions.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Dexamethasone ophthalmic solution is a generic medication.

How is it given?
Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty applying the medication, contact your veterinarian.

If discharge is present, the area should be cleansed with a sterile eyewash solution prior to applying Dexamethasone ophthalmic solution.

Shake the solution well before using. Place one hand under and around your pet's chin and lift upward, so the pet's eyes are looking towards the ceiling. Rest your other hand, holding the bottle, on top of the pet's head. Be sure the tip of the bottle is pointed away from your pet's eye so if your pet jerks, the tip will not injure the eye. Hold the bottle about one inch from the eye. Squeeze the drops into the corner of the eye, taking care not to touch the dropper to the eye surface. Continue to hold the head back for a moment while the drops disperse over the whole eye surface.

Always wash your hands before and after applying this medication. If you are applying more than one medication to the eye, allow 5 minutes between applications so one medication is not washed out by the next. Be sure not to interchange the caps of the medications.

This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.

What results can I expect?
Dexamethasone ophthalmic solution should help decrease eye inflammation (redness). If doses are missed or the entire treatment regimen is not completed, your pet's symptoms could recur or worsen. Consult your veterinarian if your pet's condition does not improve or worsens after beginning treatment with Dexamethasone ophthalmic solution.
