How should I use Megabrom Eye Drops (Bromfenac)?
Use Megabrom Eye Drops (Bromfenac) according to your physician's instructions to ensure the safest and most effective results. It is normally administered once daily, but your particular dosage will be determined by the condition being treated, your current health, and the severity of your symptoms. Wash your hands before each use to remove any dirt or contaminants. Shake the bottle gently to mix its contents and observe the solution to make sure it is not cloudy or discolored as this may indicate contamination. To apply the drops tilt your head back slightly, gently pull down the lower lid of the eye being treated, hold the bottle over the eye, and dispense one drop. Slowly close the eyelid to spread the medicine and keep the eye closed for ten seconds to allow enough time for it to be absorbed. You may be instructed to apply pressure to the inside corner of the eye using a finger to prevent the drop from draining into the tear duct. Do not allow the tip of the bottle to contact any foreign surfaces as this may cause contamination. It is also recommended to wash your hands after each application to prevent the solution from contacting any mucous membranes or areas not being treated. Always ask your physician any questions about the medicine to ensure the correct usage.
