Lotemax is an ophthalmic medication used to treat inflammatory eye conditions such as allergic conjunctivitis, acne rosacea, superficial punctate keratitis, herpes zoster keratitis, iritis, cyclitis, and selective infective conjunctivitides.
Loteprednol is an ester corticosteroid that reduces intraocular and ocular surface inflammation possibly through supporting certain proteins that mediate inflammation. This medication differs from traditional corticosteroids due to its absent number 20 ketone group which helps it avoid adverse effects common to other topical corticosteroids.
Lotemax has been found safer and possibly more effective in treating inflammatory eye conditions than ketone corticosteroids, especially for long-term treatment. The eye drop solution is also highly lipid soluble meaning it is more easily absorbed into your cells.
