    Hard to get only one drop

    By Wisson on Apr 19, 2021

    This works as my vet ophthalmologist said my dog's eyes are not getting worse, but the drip head on the bottle is very hard to control to emit only one drop. With the cost and prescription-required, I wish it was easier to control. On the other hand, it doesn't seem to bother my dog, other than having me pry her eye open to dispense it.

    German Shepherd diagnosed with pannus

    By pgailg on Jul 15, 2020

    My girl was 100% blind in her right eye and could see about 30% in her left. Both eyes were clouded over. Within a week or so the cloudiness was gone and a month after the initial diagnosis she was almost back to her normal vision. We used it for the first 6 weeks 3 times a day but now using 1-2 times a day then should be able to decrease to maybe once or twice a week for life. This pannus came on fairly sudden so we think it was caught soon enough to help with this Prednisolone Acetate.

    works amazing!

    By Crux on Jun 27, 2019

    My cats left eye was dark and a little cloudy. The vet thought it might be anterior uveitis so he prescribed this. In just 4 days it has improved so much and is now nearly matching his regular eye color. Hopefully by finishing the bottle he’ll improve.
