Prolensa Side Effects

Side Effects to Report

Some Prolensa side effects are potentially serious, and should be reported to your healthcare provider immediately. Signs of these potentially serious side effects include:
 
  • Severe, persistent, or unexplained eye pain
  • Persistent blurry or blocked vision
  • Blood in the front part of the eye
  • Easy bruising or bleeding
  • Signs of problems with the cornea (the transparent front part of the eye), such as:
    • Excessive tears or discharge from the eye
    • Severe eye pain or soreness
    • Severe eye redness
    • Extreme sensitivity to light
    • Swelling of the eyelid
 
  • Signs of an allergic reaction, such as:
    • An unexplained rash
    • Hives
    • Itching
    • Unexplained swelling of the mouth or throat
    • Wheezing or difficulty breathing or swallowing.
 
It should be noted that you may have some symptoms as a result of your cataract surgery. However, these symptoms usually improve quickly. Make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about what type of symptoms you can expect and how long they may last, so you can report any symptoms that cannot be explained by your surgery alone.
 

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the Prolensa side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while using Prolensa or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
