Prednisolone-AFT general information

What is Prednisolone-AFT used for?

Prednisolone-AFT Eye Drops 1% are used to treat inflammation of the eye, including inflammation of the ocular or bulbar conjunctiva, a clear membrane that covers the outer surface of the eye or sclera (white of the eye) and the palpebral conjunctiva that lines the inside of the eyelids.  Also the cornea, which is the clear protective area at the front of the eye, and the anterior segment of the globe that includes the iris, pupil, lens, cornea and fluid filled anterior chamber.  Prednisolone-AFT Eye Drops 1% are used as short-term treatment to relieve symptoms of eye inflammation, including irritation, burning, redness and swelling that are caused by chemicals, heat, radiation, allergy, or foreign objects in the eye, but they should not be used for viral, fungal or bacterial eye infection and is only suitable for steroid-responsive inflammation.

How does Prednisolone-AFT work?

Prednisolone-AFT Eye Drops 1% contain prednisolone, which is corticosteroid hormone and is a synthetic derivative of the natural glucocorticoid cortisol, with potent anti-inflammatory properties.  Prednisolone in Prednisolone-AFT Eye Drops 1% acts directly through the glucocorticoid receptor that is expressed inside most cells of the body and regulates transcription of specific genes that control the inflammatory and immune response.  The major therapeutic actions of prednisolone are to reduce the vascular (blood vessels) and cellular inflammatory response primarily by blocking the production of inflammatory chemicals, like prostaglandins and leukotrienes, from inflammatory cells.  This action reduces the swelling (oedema), redness and pain associated with inflammation and modifies the actions of cells involved in allergic and inflammatory responses, such as phagocytic migration. 

What does Prednisolone-AFT contain?

Prednisolone-AFT Eye Drops contain the active ingredient prednisolone acetate (microfine suspension) 1.0%, a potent anti-inflammatory corticosteroid used to treat inflammation of the eye.  They also contain benzalkonium chloride (preservative), carbomer 980, sodium acetate trihydrate, sodium hydroxide, sorbitol, water.
