In clinical studies, Bromday was shown to reduce pain and inflammation in people who had cataract surgery. In these studies, people were randomly assigned to use either Bromday or a placebo (an eye drop with no active ingredient) starting one day before their surgery and continuing for two weeks after surgery.
In two of the clinical studies, 46 to 47 percent of people treated with Bromday had no inflammation 15 days after surgery. In comparison, only 25 to 29 percent of people treated with the placebo were inflammation-free after 15 days.
In addition 83 to 89 percent of people using Bromday reported no pain the day following their surgery. In comparison, 51 to 71 percent of those using the placebo were pain-free the day after surgery.
Some general considerations to keep in mind when using this medicine 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 Bromday.
- 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 or using them longer than prescribed will not make the medication work better and may cause side effects.
There is only one standard recommended dose of Bromday. As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
