The recommended dose of Bromday is the same for everyone -- one drop applied to the affected eye(s) once a day. The drops are started the day before cataract surgery and then taken the day of the surgery and for 14 days after the surgery. Do not touch the tip of the dropper to any surface, including the surface of the eye, or it may contaminate the medication.
There is only one standard recommended dose of Bromday® (bromfenac ophthalmic solution). As is always the case, do not adjust the amount unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
The usual recommended Bromday dosage to treat inflammation after cataract surgery is one drop applied to the affected eye(s) once a day. Normally, treatment begins 1 day before surgery, continues on the day of surgery, and lasts for 14 days following surgery. Using the medicine for more than one day before surgery or for longer than 14 days after surgery may increase the risk for developing problems with the cornea.
Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Bromday include the following:
- This medicine comes in the form of an eye drop. It is normally used once a day, starting 1 day before surgery and continuing for 14 days after surgery.
- If you are using another eye drop medicine, make sure to wait at least five minutes between using Bromday and the other medicine.
- Do not wear contacts while using this medicine.
- To prevent contamination with bacteria, avoid touching the tip of the dropper to any surface, including your eye.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed. Using more drops than prescribed will not make the medication work better, and may cause side effects.
- If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Bromday dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider, nurse, or pharmacist.
