What is this medicine?

KETOROLAC (kee toe ROLE ak) is a non- steroidal anti- inflammatory drug (NSAID). This eye drop is used to treat pain and swelling after eye surgery. It is also used to decrease swelling or redness caused by allergies.

What should I tell my health care provider before I take this medicine?

They need to know if you have any of these conditions:
  • bleeding problems
  • contact lenses
  • diabetes mellitus
  • dry eye syndrome, other eye problems, or recent eye surgery
  • an unusual or allergic reaction to ketorolac, aspirin, other NSAIDs, other medicines, foods, dyes or preservatives
  • pregnant or trying to get pregnant
  • breast- feeding

How should I use this medicine?

This medicine is only for use in the eye. Do not take by mouth. Remove contact lenses before use. Follow the directions on the prescription label. Wash hands before and after use. Tilt your head back slightly and pull your lower eyelid down with your index finger to form a pouch. Try not to touch the tip of the dropper to your eye, fingertips, or any other surface. Use 1 bottle for each eye after eye surgery in both eyes. Do not use the same bottle for both eyes. Squeeze the prescribed number of drops into the pouch. Close the eye gently to spread the drops. Your vision may blur for a few minutes. Use your doses at regular intervals. Do not use your medicine more often than directed. For smaller, single- use vials, throw away each vial after use.

Talk to your pediatrician regarding the use of this medicine in children. Special care may be needed.

What if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose, use it as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your next dose, use only that dose. Do not use double or extra doses.
