What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Prolensa is a prescription eye drop that can be prescribed before, during, and after surgery to prevent itching, pain, redness, and inflammation. It is commonly used during cataract surgery.

Bromfenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), meaning that it works by reducing inflammation where applied. Inflammation occurs when the immune system is activated during healing. However, during surgery, inflammation can hinder and slow the healing process if not controlled.

Routes of administration

Eye drops


Use Prolensa exactly as directed by the doctor. Apply one drop into the affected eye beginning the day before surgery and continue for 14 days or until told by your doctor to stop.

  • Bimatoprost

  • Latanoprost
  • Latanoprostene
  • Loteprednol

Tell your doctor if you have a sulfite allergy before starting this medication.

You may be at an increased risk of bleeding while using Prolensa.
