I had a cataract in my left eye and I recently underwent its removal surgery in November 2019. Doctors have recommended Acular Eye Drops to stop the inflammation in my eye now. I have started using this ophthalmic solution and it is giving me relief from inflammation. It is a trusted medicine as my doctor discussed it with me. Use it with clean hands.
