FML Liquifilm Eye Drop (Fluorometholone Ophthalmic Suspension) work
FML Liquifilm Eye Drop (Fluorometholone Ophthalmic Suspension) contain the active ingredient fluorometholone, which is a type of medicine called a corticosteroid (or steroid). Corticosteroids are used for reducing inflammation.
Inflammation occurs as a result of allergy or irritation and is caused by the release of substances that are important in the immune system. These substances cause blood vessels to widen, resulting in the affected area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful.
Corticosteroids are hormones produced naturally by the adrenal glands that have many important functions, including control of inflammatory responses. They work by acting within cells to decrease the release of inflammatory substances, thereby reducing swelling, redness and irritation. Fluorometholone is a synthetic corticosteroid that can be administered into the eyes to decrease inflammation.
FML eye drops also contain polyvinyl alcohol, which acts as a lubricant for the eye and helps to relieve discomfort in a dry and inflamed eye.
