Introduction

Nexanac Eye Drops is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory prodrug (NSAID). After instillation in the eye, it penetrates the cornea and is converted by ocular tissue hydrolase to Amfenac, a potent nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Amfenac is thought to inhibit the action of cyclooxygenase enzyme. This enzyme is required for prostaglandin synthesis.

Precaution

Nexanac Eye Drops should be used with caution in patients with known bleeding tendencies or who are receiving medications which may prolong bleeding time.
