Eye care practitioners can choose from an impressive and effective armamentarium of drugs to combat infectious diseases that are caused by bacteria. In most cases, a combination steroid-antibiotic agent is the best choice to address both the infection (or the threat of infection) and the inflammation that results from bacterial inhabitation. High-dose, potent antibiotic therapy should be reserved only for those serious infectious cases where the cornea is truly threatened and should never be used injudiciously because of the evergrowing risk of antibiotic-resistant organisms.
The following adverse reactions are classified according to the following convention: very common (≥1/10), common (≥1/100 to <1/10), uncommon (≥1/1,000 to <1/100), rare (≥1/10,000 to <1/1000), very rare (<1/10,000) or not known (cannot be estimated from the available data). Within each frequency grouping, adverse reactions are presented in decreasing order of seriousness. The adverse reactions were obtained from clinical trials and post-marketing experience for MAXITROL eye drops and MAXITROL eye ointment.
Hi: This is heart breaking indeed. So, the bad news is that cataracts have begun to form, especially in one eye. The good news is that your horse still has sight out of one good eye and some sight out of the eye with the cataract. Research on Can-C reports that application of the Can-C eye drops as directed results in about 95% improvement in the subjects that were studied. Subjects have been dogs and humans – not horses – but researchers concluded that the Can-C helps reverse cataracts in all mammals including horses in, again, 95% of the cases. So, it is certainly worth a try, especially to insure that the good eye remains clear of a cataract.
