1 doctor agrees

In brief: Lotemax (loteprednol) isn't Visine

It's an anti-inflammatory drops intended to reduce inflamed conjunctiva & eyelids due to inflammation or extreme allergic responses, where eyes may look red, but it's not an ocular decongestant to vasoconstrict blood vessels.
So the category & drug action is different. In dry eye syndrome, it's usually due lack of oil gland production to keep tears on eyes, where lubricating drops are used instead.
