Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension Description

Cataracts are a common occurrence in older people and surgery is the best option for saving your sight. If you are scheduled for cataract surgery, your doctor may recommend a prescription for Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension for reducing inflammation post-operatively and allow you to heal in relative comfort. Some risk factors for getting cataracts include diabetes, hormone replacement therapy (HRT), smoking, obesity, and previous eye injuries or surgeries.

Inhibit the COX Enzymes From Producing Inflammatory Substances

The active ingredient in Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension is Nepafenac. Usually the first dose you will administer is on the day before surgery. Nepafenac is called a prodrug, meaning it will be changed into its active form once the drops are instilled into your eye. As Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension penetrates your cornea, hydrolytic enzymes split the molecules in two using water and the prodrug is now converted into Amfenac. Once this occurs, the cyclooxygenase (COX) enzymes are inhibited so production of inflammatory chemicals, including prostaglandins, are reduced.

Conditions Treated by Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension

The lens of your eye consists mainly of water and protein, with the protein allowing light to pass through due to the precise way it is arranged. As you age, some of this protein can clump together and cause an area of your lens to become cloudy. With time, this cloudy area will expand and impair your vision.

The most common procedure carried out to remove cataracts is called phacoemulsification. This involves the surgeon making a small incision at the side of your cornea and a high-frequency ultrasound instrument breaks up the cloudy lens which is then suctioned out and an intraocular lens will be inserted. This is an out-patient procedure so you can recover in the comfort of your own home.

Before Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension is Prescribed

Discuss other medical conditions and allergies you have with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including alternative medicine and supplements so your doctor can determine if Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension is safe for you to use. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before you instill Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension and do not reinsert them until your doctor instructs you to.

Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension Precautions

Arrange for a ride to and from your procedure as you are not permitted to drive afterwards for a given period of time. Try not to touch the dropper of Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension to your eye as this can contaminate it or cause an eye infection. Keep Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension and other medications out of children’s reach.
