Bromday Overview

Updated: 

Bromday is a prescription medication used to treat eye inflammation and eye pain in patients who have undergone cataract surgery. Bromday belongs to a group of drugs called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It works by stopping the release of certain natural substances that cause pain and swelling.

This medication comes in the form of an eye drop to be given once a day beginning the day before cataract surgery, on the day of surgery, and for 14 days after surgery.

Common side effects in clinical trials include burning/stinging of the eye, blurred vision, and the feeling of "something in the eye" (foreign body sensation).

Bromday Precautions

Serious side effects have been reported with Bromday including:

  • Sulfite Allergic Reactions: Contains a sulfite that may cause allergic type reactions including anaphylactic symptoms and life-threatening or less severe asthmatic episodes in people with this allergy.
  • Slow or Delayed Healing: All topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including Bromday, may slow or delay healing.
  • Potential for Cross-Sensitivity: There is the potential for cross-sensitivity to aspirin and other NSAIDs, including Bromday. Therefore, caution should be used if you have previously exhibited sensitivities to these drugs.
  • Increased Bleeding Time: With some NSAIDs, including Bromday, increased bleeding time may be possible, especially when it is given after surgery. Bromday should be used with caution in those with known bleeding tendencies or who are receiving blood thinners
  • Keratitis and Corneal (front layer part of the eye) Reactions: Use of Bromday may result in keratitis (inflammation of the eye). Long-term use of Bromday may also result in eye damage, leading to loss of sight. Patients with changes in eyesight should immediately discontinue use of topical Bromday.
  • Loss of sight: Those with complicated ocular surgeries, eye defects or damage, diabetes, eye diseases (such as dry eye syndrome), rheumatoid arthritis, or repeat ocular surgeries within a short period of time may be at increased risk for eye problems which may result in loss of sight. Bromday should be used with caution in these patients.
  • Eye Surgery Precaution: Use of Bromday more than 24 hours before surgery or beyond 14 days after surgery may increase risk for the occurrence and severity of corneal (front layer of the eye) adverse events.

Bromday can cause blurred vision. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know how Bromday affects you.

Bromday and Pregnancy

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

The FDA categorizes medications based on safety for use during pregnancy. Five categories - A, B, C, D, and X, are used to classify the possible risks to an unborn baby when a medication is taken during pregnancy.

Bromday falls into category C. There are no well-done studies in pregnant women. However, NSAIDs (including Bromday) are known to cause harm to the baby’s heart (ductus arteriosus). Therefore, the use of Bromday during late pregnancy should be avoided. Bromday should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.

Bromday and Lactation

Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed.

Caution should be used when Bromday is given to a nursing (breastfeeding) woman.
