Augenstock Neopred ophthalmic is used to treat eye swelling and pain after eye surgery. Augenstock Neopred ophthalmic is in a class of medications called corticosteroids. It works by stopping the release of certain natural substances that cause swelling and pain. Corticosteroids inhibit the inflammatory response to a variety of inciting agents and may delay or slow healing. They inhibit edema, fibrin deposition, capillary dilation,leukocytemigration,capillaryproliferation, fibroblast prolifera-
tion, deposition of collagen, and scar formation associated with inflammation. This medication is used to treat swelling and pain after eye surgery. It may also be used to treat a certain serious eye problem (endogenous anterior uveitis).To apply eye drops, wash your hands first.
