However, all this depends on the evaluation process carried out by your doctor. If after 2 days the eye inflammation process has improved, then the doctor can advise to stop this treatment. Therefore, if you get this steroid drug freely, then you should consult directly with your family doctor or ophthalmologist, so that the doctor can conduct an examination and ascertain the cause of this complaint, whether due to sterile inflammation or due to infection in the eye.
