What should I know about nepafenac ophthalmic before using it?

Before you use nepafenac ophthalmic, tell your doctor if you wear contact lenses. Soft contact lenses could absorb one of the chemicals in the medicine. Do not put contact lenses in your eyes for 15 minutes after using the eye drops. Tell your doctor if you have diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, dry eye syndrome or a bleeding or blood clot disorder. Use nepafenac ophthalmic for only two weeks after your surgery unless your doctor gives different instructions. Don't let the eyedropper touch any surface, your eyes or hands because the dropper could become contaminated and cause an eye infection.
