triamcinolone

More commonly known as Kenalog, this is a injection steroid used in and around the eye. Retina specialists may inject this medicine into the eye to decrease retinal swelling (macular edema) or to reduce ocular inflammation with recalcitrant uveitis. I occasionally inject this medicine into eyelid lesions, such as chalazions, in order to minimize inflammation and speed up recovery.
