Acular (ketorolac ophthalmic) is a prescription eye drop medication used to treat two common eye conditions:

  • Seasonal allergic conjunctivitis: This is an allergic reaction that affects the conjunctiva, the thin layer of tissue lining your eye. Symptoms include itching, redness, watering, and burning of the eyes. Acular provides temporary relief from these symptoms.
  • Postoperative inflammation after certain eye surgeries: Acular can help reduce swelling, pain, and burning after surgeries like cataract removal.

Acular is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body.


  • Wash your hands thoroughly before using the drops.
  • Tilt your head back, look up, and create a pouch with your lower eyelid.
  • Apply one drop directly into the pouch.
  • Gently close your eyes for 1-2 minutes and press the inner corner of your eye to prevent drainage.
  • Repeat for the other eye if instructed.
  • Use eye drops before ointments.
  • Wait several minutes for your vision to clear before driving or operating machinery.
  • Tell your healthcare provider if your condition worsens.


  • Touch the dropper tip to your eye or any other surface.
  • Use the drops while wearing contact lenses.
  • Rinse the dropper after use.
  • Use more drops or for a longer duration than prescribed.
  • Rub your eye after applying the drops.
  • Use the drops if your condition lasts longer than expected.

This medication is typically used for up to 4 days after eye surgery, but always follow your healthcare provider's instructions. Prolonged use (over 2 weeks) can increase the risk of serious eye problems.

Common side effects of Acular may include:

  • Mild eye pain, stinging, or redness
  • Blurred vision
  • Watery eyes
  • Swollen or puffy eyelids

Serious side effects of Acular:

  • Vision changes
  • Increased sensitivity to light
  • White patches on your eyes
  • Crusting or drainage from your eyes

This is not an exhaustive list, and other side effects may occur. If you experience any unusual or severe side effects while taking  Acular,  contact your healthcare provider for medical advice.

Disclose any allergies to ketorolac, aspirin, other NSAIDs, or preservatives like benzalkonium chloride.

Medical History to Discuss with healthcare provider:

  • Asthma (especially worsened by aspirin or NSAIDs)
  • Bleeding problems
  • Previous eye surgery or eye problems (dry eyes, corneal issues)
  • Diabetes
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Nasal polyps

Temporary blurred or unstable vision after application.

Wait until your vision clears before driving, using machinery, or doing activities requiring clear vision.
