BROMFENAC - OPHTHALMIC

(BROME-fen-ak)

COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Bromday, Xibrom

USES: This medication is used to treat swelling (inflammation) and pain in the eye after a certain type of eye surgery (cataract surgery). Bromfenac belongs to a class of drugs known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It works by blocking the effects of certain natural substances (prostaglandins) that cause pain and inflammation.

HOW TO USE: Your doctor may direct you to start using this medication the day before or the day after your surgery. Place 1 drop into the affected eye as directed by your doctor, usually once or twice a day for 2 weeks. Carefully follow your doctor's specific directions.

To apply eye drops, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface.

This medication should not be used while wearing contact lenses. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details.

If you are wearing contact lenses, remove them before using eye drops. Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place 1 drop into the pouch. Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes. Place one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose) and apply gentle pressure. This will prevent the medication from draining out. Try not to blink and do not rub your eye.

Do not rinse the dropper. Replace the dropper cap after each use.

If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least 5 to 10 minutes before applying other medications. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the drops to enter the eye.

Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time(s) each day. Continue using it for the full time prescribed.

Do not apply this medication more often than prescribed or continue using it for longer than directed by your doctor. Prolonged use of bromfenac eye drops may increase the risk of very serious side effects of the eye.
