Managing Steroid Responders

by Andrew Morgenstern, OD, Walter Whitley, OD

Walt Whitley, OD, and Andy Morgenstern, OD, share their thoughts on how to effectively manage steroid responders. Walt says that nonsteroidal therapy is a great tool for a variety of conditions and he explains how he has successfully managed patients’ inflammation and pain. Andy agrees and outlines why it is important for optometrists to document when they observe steroid response in patients. He also says that clinicians should not be afraid to use steroids when they are needed, as only a small percentage of the population will experience a response.
