Acuvail 0.45% is used to treat eye pain and swelling (inflammation) after cataract surgery. Ketorolac belongs to a class of drugs known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It works by blocking certain natural substances in your body to reduce pain and swelling.
How to Use Acuvail
Apply Acuvail 0.45% to the affected eye as directed by your doctor, usually twice daily starting 1 day before surgery, continuing on the day of surgery, and then for 2 weeks after surgery. To apply eye medication, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface. Do not wear contact lenses while using Acuvail 0.45%. Sterilize contact lenses according to the manufacturer's directions, and check with your doctor before you begin using them again. 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, gently close your eyes, and place one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose). Apply gentle pressure for 1 to 2 minutes before opening your eyes. This will prevent the medication from draining out. Try not to blink or rub your eye. Wait several minutes for your vision to clear before driving or operating machinery. For single-use vials, open the vial right before use. After use, discard any remaining solution right away. Do not keep an opened vial for later use. If you are using another kind of eye medication (such as drops or ointments), wait at least 5 minutes between applying each medication. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the drops to enter the eye. Do not use Acuvail 0.45% more often or for longer than directed by your doctor. Acuvail 0.45% is usually used only for a short time. Prolonged use may slow or delay healing and may increase your chance of serious side effects. Tell your doctor if your condition persists or if it worsens (for example, you develop worsening eye pain/itching/swelling).
Before using ketorolac, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to aspirin; or to other NSAIDs (such as ibuprofen, celecoxib); or if you have any other allergies. Acuvail 0.45% may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Acuvail 0.45%, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,aspirin-sensitive asthma (a history of worsening breathing with runny/stuffy nose after taking aspirin or other NSAIDs), bleeding problems, recent multiple eye surgeries, other eye problems (such as dry eye syndrome, cornea problems), diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, nasal polyps. Your vision may be temporarily unstable after applying Acuvail 0.45%. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity that requires clear vision until you are sure you can perform such activities safely. If you develop an eye infection or injury, ask your doctor if you should continue to use Acuvail 0.45%. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Before using Acuvail 0.45%, women of childbearing age should talk with their doctor(s) about the benefits and risks (such as miscarriage, trouble getting pregnant). Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or if you plan to become pregnant. During pregnancy, Acuvail 0.45% should be used only when clearly needed.

The effects of some drugs can change if you take other drugs or herbal products at the same time. This can increase your risk for serious side effects or may cause your medications not to work correctly. These drug interactions are possible, but do not always occur. Your doctor or pharmacist can often prevent or manage interactions by changing how you use your medications or by close monitoring.

Acuvail 0.45% may increase the risk of bleeding when used with other drugs that also may cause bleeding. Examples include anti-platelet drugs such as clopidogrel, "blood thinners" such as dabigatran/enoxaparin/warfarin, among others. Check all prescription and nonprescription medicine labels carefully since many medications contain pain relievers/fever reducers (aspirin, NSAIDs such as ibuprofen or naproxen). These drugs are similar to ketorolac and may increase your risk of side effects if taken together. However, if your doctor has directed you to take low-dose aspirin to prevent heart attack or stroke (usually at dosages of 81-325 milligrams a day), you should continue taking the aspirin unless your doctor instructs you otherwise.
