Ocular complications may occur with the use of corticosteroid- containing eyedrops. We describe two cases of corticosteroid-induced glaucoma and one case of corticosteroid-associated fungal keratitis. Corticosteroid- containing eyedrops should be avoided unless the practitioner is knowledgeable about tonometry, slit-lamp examination techniques, and ocular differential diagnosis and treatment. Alternative pharmacologic approaches to topical administration of corticosteroid-containing eyedrops are discussed.
