BromSite® is administered as 1 drop in the affected eye twice daily, starting one day prior to surgery, the day of surgery, and continuing 14 days postsurgery.1 BromSite® is available in a 5 mL bottle to ensure adequate medication over the dosing schedule.1

BromSite® may be used concomitantly with other ophthalmic medications.1 Patients should be advised to administer BromSite® at least 5 minutes after instillation of other topical ophthalmic medications.1 Contact lenses should not be worn during treatment with BromSite®.1 The preservative in BromSite®, benzalkonium chloride, may be absorbed by soft contact lenses.1

All topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including BromSite®, may slow or delay healing. Topical corticosteroids are also known to slow or delay healing. Concomitant use of topical NSAIDs and topical steroids may increase the potential for healing problems.1

Important Safety Information

Indications and Usage

BromSite® (bromfenac ophthalmic solution) 0.075% is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) indicated for the treatment of postoperative inflammation and prevention of ocular pain in patients undergoing cataract surgery.

Important Safety Information

  • Slow or Delayed Healing: All topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including BromSite®, may slow or delay healing. Topical corticosteroids are also known to slow or delay healing. Concomitant use of topical NSAIDs and topical steroids may increase the potential for healing problems.
  • Potential for Cross-Sensitivity: There is the potential for cross-sensitivity to acetylsalicylic acid, phenylacetic acid derivatives, and other NSAIDs, including BromSite®. Therefore, caution should be used when treating individuals who have previously exhibited sensitivities to these drugs. Increased
  • Increased Bleeding Time of Ocular Tissue: With some NSAIDs, including BromSite®, there exists the potential for increased bleeding time due to interference with platelet aggregation. There have been reports that ocularly applied NSAIDs may cause increased bleeding of ocular tissues (including hyphemas) in conjunction with ocular surgery. It is recommended that BromSite® be used with caution in patients with known bleeding tendencies or who are receiving other medications which may prolong bleeding time.
  • Keratitis and Corneal Effects: Use of topical NSAIDs may result in keratitis. In some susceptible patients, continued use of topical NSAIDs may result in epithelial breakdown, corneal thinning, corneal erosion, corneal ulceration or corneal perforation. Patients with evidence of corneal epithelial breakdown should immediately discontinue use of topical NSAIDs, including BromSite®, and should be closely monitored for corneal health. Patients with complicated ocular surgeries, corneal denervation, corneal epithelial defects, diabetes mellitus, ocular surface diseases (e.g., dry eye syndrome), rheumatoid arthritis, or repeat ocular surgeries within a short period of time may be at increased risk for corneal adverse events which may become sight threatening. Topical NSAIDs should be used with caution in these patients. Post-marketing experience with topical NSAIDs also suggests that use more than 24 hours prior to surgery or use beyond 14 days postsurgery may increase patient risk for the occurrence and severity of corneal adverse events.
  • Contact Lens Wear: BromSite® should not be administered while wearing contact lenses. The preservative in BromSite®, benzalkonium chloride, may be absorbed by soft contact lenses.
  • Adverse Reactions: The most commonly reported adverse reactions in 1% to 8% of patients were anterior chamber inflammation, headache, vitreous floaters, iritis, eye pain, and ocular hypertension.
