Pseudomonas aeruginosa endophthalmitis is among the most serious complications of cataract surgery. The condition is often associated with a poor visual prognosis. Acuvail is a new nonsteroidal antiinflammatory ophthalmic solution for the treatment of pain and inflammation following cataract surgery. It contains ketorolac tromethamine 0.45% as an active ingredient and carboxymethylcellulose as an inactive ingredient; it is preservative free and packaged in unit-dose vials. Experimental evidence indicates that carboxymethylcellulose can support the growth of some strains of Pseudomonas and Escherichia coli.
