Can you wear contact lenses with muro 128 if you wait 15 minutes after using. How many minutes should you wait to put in glaucoma drop after muro drop?

Can you wear contact lenses with muro 128 if you wait 15 minutes after using. How many minutes should you wait to put in glaucoma drop after muro drop?

Yes: My advice with any ocular prescribed medication is to wait a minute of 5' between drop instillation. As far as contact lens wear, as long as your treating MD (ie the doctor who is recommending Muro 128 for decreasing corneal edema) has indicated to you that wearing contacts is reasonably safe, then similarly wait 5'+. Don't use the Muro ointment with contacts though. You may use it at bedtime. ...Read more

I put Muro 128 in my eyes after PRK, and since then I'm seeing starbursts on lights (1 month after). Can Muro128 cause this?

Possibly: Starburst phenomena after PRK is not unusual and is due to the irregularities of healing epithelium (the skin cells on the outer layer of the cornea). Muro 128 is a dessicant, that is, a salt water type solution designed to dry up swelling in the cornea. I would think the starburst is more from the surgery, and the drops were prescribed to help that. Recommend follow up- usually gone after 1 mo ...Read more

There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain.
