What should I know about Omnipred before using it?

Certain medical conditions may prevent you from using these eye drops, affect your dosage or require special monitoring during your treatment and should be discussed with your doctor. These conditions include: drug or food allergies, diabetes, glaucoma, herpes simplex and cataracts or recent cataract surgery. You should also tell your doctor if you wear contact lenses because some types of contact lenses may not be compatible with Omnipred. If you wear contact lenses you will need to wait at least 15 minutes after using Omnipred before you insert your lenses, and you should never use it while your contact lenses are in your eyes. Take care to avoid letting the tip of the dropper touch any surfaces, including your eye, or you may risk infecting your eye.

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should discuss the potential risks with their doctor before using Omnipred.
