EYEFEM FORTE DROP is a medication that belongs to the corticosteroid class and contains the active ingredient fluorometholone. It is primarily used as an ophthalmic (eye) solution for the treatment of various inflammatory eye conditions. Fluorometholone works by reducing inflammation and suppressing the immune response in the eye. This helps to alleviate symptoms such as redness, swelling, itching, and discomfort. EYEFEM FORTE DROP is typically administered as eye drops directly into the affected eye(s) as directed by a healthcare professional.
