How should this medicine be used?

Bromfenac eye solution is only for use in the eye. Do not take by mouth. Follow the directions on the prescription label. Remove contact lenses before use. Wash hands before and after use.

Squeeze the prescribed number of drops into the pouch. Close the eye gently to spread the drops. Your vision may blur for a few minutes. Use your doses at regular intervals. Do not use your medicine more often than directed. Do not use any other eye products without telling your prescriber or health care professional.

Contact your pediatrician or health care professional regarding the use of this medicine in children. Special care may be needed.
