It is very important that your eye doctor (ophthalmologist) check your or your child's progress at regular visits to make sure the medicine is working properly and to check for unwanted effects, especially if you will be using this medicine for 10 days or longer.

Loteprednol eye drops or eye gel are not for long-term use. Steroid eye drops may cause glaucoma (increased pressure inside the eye) or posterior subcapsular cataracts (a rare type of cataract) if used too long. Slow or delayed healing may also occur while you are using this medicine after cataract surgery. You will need to have regular eye exams with your doctor to check for these problems.

Do not wear contact lenses while you are using Lotemax® or Lotemax® SM eye gel.

If you wear contact lenses, remove them before you put the drops into your eyes. Wait at least 15 minutes after using Eysuvis™ eye drops or Inveltys® eye drops before you put your contact lenses back in.

If you are using the 0.2% loteprednol: If your eyes are red, you should not wear contact lenses. If your eyes are not red, soft contact lenses should be removed before you use this medicine. Wait at least 10 minutes after using the eye drops before reinserting the contact lenses.

If you hurt your eye or develop an eye infection, talk with your doctor right away. You may need to change your medicine or stop using it.

If your symptoms do not improve within a few days or if they become worse, check with your eye doctor (ophthalmologist) right away.
