A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Eyes are sensitive, and that’s why swelling of the eyeball can occur so easily as a result of any number of different factors. FML Forte is a prescription ocular corticosteroid medication to reduce eye swelling and is primarily for swollen eye treatment following an eye injury of corrective surgery. It provides relief from swelling, itching and redness along with preventing further complications that may result from unchecked inflammatory responses that created swelling in the eyes. Patients will use more or less of these eye drops for swollen eyes depending on the severity of their case as determined by a doctor.
Do not rinse the dropper and replace the dropper cap after each use.
Wait at least 5 to 10 minutes before applying any other ocular medications you may be using at the same time. If that is an eye ointment of any sort be sure to apply your drops first, and then apply the ointment 5 to 10 minutes later.
The active ingredient in Forte eye drops is Fluorometholone.
Inform your doctor if you have any history of eye infections, cataracts, open-angle glaucoma, severe near-sightedness (myopia), or diabetes before beginning with FML Forte eye drops.
Use with caution and get physician approval if you are pregnant or breastfeeding and want to use FML Forte eye drops.

Advise your doctor of all medications you are currently taking before getting your prescription and then proceeding to buy FML Forte eye drops.
It is not common for people to experience FML Forte side effects, but some people may have headaches dizziness, vision problems or eye pain.
