  • Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details.Use the solution immediately after opening the vial.
  • Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch.
  • Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place one drop into the pouch.
  • Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Place one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose) and apply gentle pressure.
  • This will prevent the medication from draining out.
  • Try not to blink and do not rub your eye.
  • Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed.
  • Discard the remaining contents of each vial after one use.If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least 5 minutes before applying other medications.
  • Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the eye.This medication is usually used for up to 3 days after eye surgery or as directed by your doctor.
  • Do not apply this medication more often than prescribed or continue using it for longer than directed by your doctor.
  • Prolonged use of ketorolac eye drops (more than 2 weeks) may increase the risk of very serious side effects of the eye.Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.

Side Effects
  • This medication may temporarily sting or burn your eyes for 1-2 minutes when applied.
  • Eye redness and headache may also occur.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects.
  • Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: eye swelling, eye discharge.Tell your doctor immediately if any of these rare but very serious side effects occur: vision changes, eye pain, bleeding inside the eye.A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs.

  • Do not start, stop or change the dosage of any medicine before checking with them first.Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription/herbal products you may use, especially of: anti-platelet medications (e.g., clopidogrel), "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), corticosteroid drugs (e.g., prednisone), other eye medications (e.g., corticosteroid eye drops).Check all prescription and nonprescription medicine labels carefully since many medications contain pain relievers/fever reducers (NSAIDs such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen) which, if used together with ketorolac, may increase your risk for bleeding.
