What should I avoid while using Acuvail (ketorolac tromethamine)?

Do not wear any contact lens that has not been approved by your doctor. Use this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use it in larger amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label. Using the medication for longer than prescribed may increase the risk of serious side effects on your eyes. Do not get the eye dropper dirty as this can lead to infection. Also, avoid blood-thinning medication and some steroid creams or eye drops. You should let your doctor know about all eye drops and medications you regularly take before starting on Acuvail so that you can determine if any of them should be stopped. If you do take other eye drops, make sure to wait at least five minutes after taking Acuvail to use your other drops.
