Official Answer


BromSite (bromfenac ophthalmic solution) is used for the treatment of inflammation after eye surgery, and prevention of eye pain in patients undergoing cataract surgery.

BromSite eye drops is formulated in a polymer-based formulation that may improve it's effectiveness as compared to conventional eye drops for use after cataract surgery.

In studies, significantly more patients treated with BromSite were pain-free the first day after surgery and inflammation-free 15 days after surgery compared to those who received only the product vehicle.

Bromfenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory eye drop available in a generic version, as well. Your doctor can determine which product might be best for you.
