Mode of Action
Fluorometholone suppresses the migration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and reversal of increased capillary permeability thus decreasing inflammation.
May stimulate alpha-adrenergic receptors in the arterioles of the conjunctiva; produces vasoconstriction. May produce mydriasis when applied to the conjunctiva, but this effect is usually minimal with the concentrations used as ocular decongestants.
