  • FML and other ointments

    Yesterday I received a call from my lasik clinic saying that the chief surgeon would like me to try FML. The clerk on the phone said 'FML is a non-steroidal anti0inflammatory. I did a bit of research and it appears that FML is actually a steroid drop. I have hear someone refer to FML ointment. What exactly is FML and how is it used to treat dry eyes? Any experience you would like to share regarding FML?

    Thanks!

    I use FML ointment at night before I go to sleep. It is a steroid. FML stands for a big, huge chemical name. If I don't use FML and muro ointment before I fall a sleep my eyeballs fill stuck to my eyelids when I wake up. The longer I sleep the more they stick.

      It is most definitely a steroid. Here's a link to Health Canada, which shows the active ingredient etc: http://webprod3.hc-sc.gc.ca/dpd-bdpp...=eng&code=1470

      Anyone have a time machine so I can go back and undo this mess?
