Product Information

  • Description

    Nepafenac, a synthetic fluorinated carboxylic acid, is biologically inactive but potent in inhibiting leukocyte pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines, making it an effective reducer of pain and inflammation in the eye. Nepafenac 0.1% is an ophthalmic suspension applied topically to the eye, spreading across the ocular surface and absorbed by the cornea and conjunctiva cells, where it blocks the COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes, reducing the production of inflammatory mediators, thereby alleviating pain and reducing inflammation. This selective inhibition of cyclooxygenase enzymes makes nepafenac a preferred choice for postoperative care in cataract surgery as it reduces ocular inflammation effectively. While nepafenac is widely approved for cataract surgery-associated pain and inflammation, it is essential to follow prescription guidelines and consult an eye doctor for proper use, ensuring it is only administered topically and not intended for oral use.

  • How To Use

    Before applying Nepafenac 0.1%, it is important to follow these steps for optimal results and to avoid any potential side effects. First, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water, ensuring that the affected area is clean and dry before application. Second, it is crucial to remove any contact lenses as they can cause irritation if contacted with the medication. For those who wear soft contact lenses, it is advised to discard and replace them in accordance with the lens replacement schedule. In the next step, carefully twist or snip off the top of the tube to expose the applicator tip. During this step, special attention should be paid to not damage the applicator or contaminate the medicine with any debris. The next step is applying Nepafenac 0.1% as directed by your healthcare provider, typically applied to the affected eye(s) twice daily, about 12 hours apart. It is recommended to apply it at a consistent time each day to maintain a steady level of the drug in the eye. Applying a small amount of pressure to the applicator tip will dispense a thin line of medication onto the applicator. It is important to apply the medication thinly and evenly to ensure it works effectively and to avoid unnecessary irritation. Gently closing your eye(s) after application allows the medication to absorb into the eye thoroughly. Avoiding wiping or rinsing your eyes or face for at least 5 minutes ensures the medication stays in the affected area. For those using Nepafenac 0.1% for longer than ten days, it is mandatory to regularly follow up with your doctor to ensure safe and effective usage. Overall, following these detailed steps alongside guidance from your healthcare provider will guarantee the best possible results from Nepafenac 0.1%.
