Buy Prolensa brand or generic Bromfenac prescription drug from Canada
Why is Prolensa eye drops prescribed?
Bromfenac (Prolensa) eye drops is prescribed for patients who have eye inflammation and eye pain associated with cataract surgery (a procedure to replace the natural lens of your eye and replace it with an artificial one, in most cases).
What does it do?
Bromfenac belongs to a class of medications called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It acts by stopping the release of prostaglandins (natural substances in the body that cause inflammation and pain) by inhibiting cyclooxygenase (the enzyme responsible for the formation of prostaglandins) 1 and 2, thus, reducing pain and inflammation.
How should I use it?
Prolensa eye drops is a 0.07% ophthalmic solution available in 3ml bottles.
In using the product, always follow the recommended number of drops your doctor has prescribed. Follow all directions on the label carefully and ask your doctor or pharmacist for any clarifications. In some instances, your doctor may also instruct you to use Prolensa eye drops a day before and on the day of your surgery.
To apply Prolensa eye drops:
- Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water
- Check the dropper tip for chipping or cracks.
- Tilt your head back slightly and form a pocket by pulling down the lower lid of your eye with your index finger.
- Place the dropper above your eye, as close as possible, with the tip facing down.
- Look up and away from the dropper and squeeze gently until a drop falls into the pocket made by your lower eyelid and remove your index finger.
- Close your eye for 2 to 3 minutes and lean your head towards the floor and do not blink or squeeze your eyelids. If you are prescribed to use more than one drop, wait for 5 minutes before administering the next drop.
- Place your finger on the tear duct and apply light pressure.
- Put back the cap firmly on the dropper bottle to prevent any spills. It is not necessary to wipe or rinse the dropper tip.
- Wash your hands to ensure they are clean and free from any medication.
Avoid touching the tip of the eye dropper with your hands or placing it directly on your eye. This may lead to an infection, and cause eyesight problems.
Each bottle of Prolensa eye drops should be used for one eye only. If both eyes will need treatment, use a separate bottle for the other eye.
