If used properly: Flarex (fluorometholone) is a topical steroid for use with steroid-sensitive eye inflammation. Follow the directions for use as provided by your doctor. Report back to your doctor if NO improvement is seen after the first 48 hrs. Do not discontinue use prematurely. Notify your doctor if you have a history of glaucoma
