Table of contents:

Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension is a medication used to relieve symptoms such as pain, redness, swelling, itching, and watering of the eyes after an operation of the eyes.

Ilevro contains the active ingredient nepafenac, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by blocking certain natural substances called prostaglandins in the body that cause pain and swelling.

Use and Dosage

Ilevro is used as prescribed by a healthcare professional and it is usually applied as one drop in the affected eye(s) once daily.

The proper usage instructions for Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension may vary depending on the individual's condition and healthcare provider's instructions. However, here are some general guidelines for using the medication:

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly before using the eye drops.
  2. Tilt your head back and pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket.
  3. Hold the bottle upside down with the tip close to your eye, but not touching it.
  4. Gently squeeze the bottle to release one drop into your eye. Do not blink or squeeze your eyelids closed.
  5. After using the medication, gently press your finger to the inside corner of your eye, near your nose, for about 1 minute. This helps to prevent the medication from draining down into the tear duct and being absorbed into the bloodstream.
  6. If you are supposed to use the medication in both eyes, repeat the process for the other eye.
  7. Use the medication exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider and do not use it more often or longer than directed.
  8. If you experience any unusual symptoms after using the medication, contact your healthcare provider.

Follow the instructions on the label and consult with your healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns about how to use Ilevro Ophthalmic Suspension.
