Eyes Home > Bromday Side Effects
Some of the commonly reported side effects of Bromday include burning, stinging, and itching of the eyes. In most cases, reactions are minor and easy to treat. However, talk to your healthcare provider if you have more serious problems, such as blurred vision, blood in front of your eye, or severe eye pain. Serious reactions such as these may require urgent medical treatment.
As with any medicine, Bromday® (bromfenac ophthalmic solution) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Bromday. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
Bromday has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the most commonly reported side effects, occurring in 2 percent to 7 percent of people, included:
- An abnormal sensation in the eye
- Red eyes
- Eye irritation, such as burning and stinging
- Eye pain
- Itchy eyes
- Inflammation of the iris (iritis).
It is worthwhile to note that these side effects were reported when Bromday was used after cataract surgery. Therefore, it is possible that some of the side effects were actually caused by the eye surgery itself, and not the medication.
