If you’re going to undergo cataract surgery, your eye doctor may prescribe PROLENSA® to treat inflammation and reduce pain you may experience after cataract surgery. PROLENSA® is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) taken as an eye drop. Your doctor will have you take PROLENSA® one day before surgery, on the day of your surgery, and once daily through the treatment period.
If you have further questions about PROLENSA®, talk to your eye doctor.

No. PROLENSA® is FDA approved and is the only NSAID of its kind that is taken once daily. PROLENSA® was extensively studied in clinical trials and was approved based on its efficacy and safety profile in treating inflammation and reducing pain after cataract surgery.
Sometimes your pharmacy will ask if you want a generic substitution for branded medications. If you are prescribed PROLENSA® after cataract surgery, it’s important to know that there is no generic equivalent for this drug.
If you are asked by your pharmacist to substitute your PROLENSA® prescription, you should contact your eye doctor.
