Flurbiprofen Ophthalmic Dosage

The dose of flurbiprofen ophthalmic is the same for everyone -- one drop in the eye about every half an hour, starting two hours before the eye surgery. Do not use more drops than recommended; it will not make the medicine more effective, and it can increase your risk for side effects.

An Introduction to Your Dosage of Flurbiprofen Ophthalmic

There is only one standard recommended dose of flurbiprofen ophthalmic (Ocufen®). As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.  
 

Recommended Flurbiprofen Ophthalmic Dosing Guidelines

General Information on Using Flurbiprofen Ophthalmic

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with flurbiprofen ophthalmic include the following:
 
  • Flurbiprofen ophthalmic comes in the form of an eye drop that is normally used every half an hour starting two hours before surgery.
 
  • To prevent contamination with bacteria, do not touch the tip of the dropper to any surface, including your eye. If you are using this medicine in both eyes, your healthcare provider should give you two bottles -- one bottle for each eye.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed. Using more drops than prescribed will not make the medication more effective, and may cause side effects.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your flurbiprofen ophthalmic dosage, please talk with your healthcare provider, nurse, or pharmacist.
