Drugs Home > Bromfenac Ophthalmic Solution Information

Adults who are having cataract surgery may receive a medication called bromfenac ophthalmic solution (Bromday®, ProlensaTM, Xibrom®). This prescription medicine comes as an eye drop that is used in the affected eye(s) once or twice daily, depending on the particular product being used.
 
Although most people who receive this medicine tolerate it fairly well, side effects are possible. Some of the potential side effects include eye irritation and sensitivity to light. Fortunately, most reactions to the drug tend to be mild and easy to treat.
 
While this drug can be effective, bromfenac ophthalmic solution is not appropriate for everyone. Information on your medical history should be reviewed with your healthcare provider before using this medicine to minimize your risk for certain complications. For example, let your healthcare provider know if you have any allergies, diabetes, or are pregnant or nursing.
