Bromfenac Eye Drops
By blocking certain substances in the body that cause inflammation and pain, bromfenac ophthalmic solution (Bromday®, Prolensa™, Xibrom®) can help reduce eye pain and swelling caused by cataract surgery.
Available in the form of eye drops, bromfenac is started the day before cataract surgery and continued for 14 days after surgery. This medicine is usually applied to the affected eye(s) once or twice daily, depending on which product you are using.
Before using bromfenac, your healthcare provider will need information on your medical history and any other medications, vitamins, or supplements you are using. Side effects are possible and may include eye irritation and sensitivity to the light.
