Prolensa Ophthalmic Solution Description

Whether it’s the natural aging process or a medical condition, cataract surgery may be recommended by a doctor or ophthalmologist to help restore your sight so the world is not a blur. Prolensa Ophthalmic Solution is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) a doctor can prescribe to use pre- and post-operatively to help reduce swelling, inflammation and pain while recovering. Cataract surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL).

Reduce Post-Op Inflammation

When Prolensa Ophthalmic Solution is instilled into the treated eye, the active ingredient, Bromfenac, will work to interfere with the cyclooxygenase enzymes, namely COX-1 and COX-2. This will obstruct the production of prostaglandins whose job is to cause inflammation as a response to injury. This is intended to heal the wound but inflammation causes swelling, pain, and more inflammation which can make the recovery period difficult. Prolensa Ophthalmic Solution does not block the prostaglandins entirely but because inflammation causes more inflammation, Bromfenac will limit its production to allow comfort following surgery.

More About Cataracts

Through normal wear and tear over the years, the lens of your eye(s) can cause impaired vision. The lens is mostly made of water and protein. The arrangement of the protein is the reason the lens is clear and allows light to pass through to the retina. As people age, this protein can clump together and a small part of the lens will cloud up. This clouding can progress until your vision is blurry. Regular eye exams are important for maintaining healthy eyes so there is decreased risk for loss of sight. Other risk factors for cataracts include smoking and diabetes.

Before Prolensa Ophthalmic Solution is Prescribed

Ask the doctor about any risks of using Prolensa Ophthalmic Solution if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies with the doctor and list any OTC or Rx medications you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements as this can determine if you can go ahead and buy Prolensa Ophthalmic Solution.

Prolensa Ophthalmic Solution Proper Use

If you wear contact lenses, remove them before instilling Prolensa Ophthalmic Solution and wait at least 10 minutes before inserting them again. You will not be able to drive or perform any task that requires you to see clearly immediately following the use of Prolensa Ophthalmic Solution. If there are other eye drops, gel, or ointment to administer, ask the doctor the best way to do this without compromising the effects of each of them.
