Other Dexamethasone Eye MedicinesDexamethasone is also available as an ophthalmic solution eye drop in the form of dexamethasone sodium phosphate. Dexamethasone ophthalmic solution is available in generic versions made by Alcon Laboratories, Inc., and Bausch & Lomb, Inc.
Although dexamethasone ophthalmic solution is not a generic version of Maxidex (since Maxidex is a suspension, not a solution), it is also approved to treat inflammation of the eyes caused by certain eye conditions. It may also be less expensive than Maxidex. If cost is a concern for you, ask your healthcare provider if the eye drop solution could be an option for your particular condition.
