A new potent steroid eye drop called Durezol (DER-eh-zole, difluprednate 0.05%)

A new potent steroid eye drop called Durezol (DER-eh-zole, difluprednate 0.05%) will hit the Canadian market.

It will compete with prednisolone 1% (Pred Forte, etc) and other ocular steroids...for reducing pain and inflammation after cataract surgery or due to anterior uveitis.

Expect Durezol and prednisolone 1% to have similar side effects...blurred vision, eye irritation, dry eye, etc.
