These eye drops were a lifesaver for both my daughter and my husband. My daughter was in a horrible car accident when she was 16, in which she had lacerations to her cornea, and of course swelling. So Flurbiprofen, which is an optical anti inflammatory (and works for a little pain as well) was very much needed and used with fantastic results! Also,my husband was poked in the eye by a limb and had a hole in his cornea, so he was prescribed these drops as well. Works wonders!
