Gordon and Mc Lean [1] in 1950 introduced the use of corticosteroid and ACTH for ophthalmic use. The first rational use of prednisone and prednisolone for ocular inflammatory diseases was described by Gordon in 1956 where topical steroid was found to be efficacious in anterior segment disease and systemic steroid was preferred for posterior segment disease.
