Drugs Home > What Is Bromfenac Used For?
A healthcare provider may recommend that you use bromfenac if you have cataract surgery. This drug is applied to the eye and works by blocking certain substances in the body that cause pain and inflammation. This prescription eye drop may sometimes be prescribed for treating pain and swelling caused by other types of eye surgeries; however, these are off-label uses.
