Comment:
I don't like using this cream in my eye as it is very thick and takes a while to come out of the bottle and doesn't always make it easy to get it into the eye. I have arthritis in my fingers and you have to press the bottle very hard to get a drop out. But I must take it as am under ophthalmologist's orders after a cataract operation. I have been taking it every day, three drops per da ... Show Full Comment

I had no side effects from it after cataract surgery. For a week after the surgery, whenever I felt a dull ache in my eye, the Nevanac seemed to soothe the ache, like an aspirin for my eye. My vision in the surgical eye is now 20/20.

Comment:
I took this medication prior to cataract surgery along with vigamox. Now after cataract surgery I use Nevanac, Vigamox, and Durezol drops three times a day in my right eye. All is going well except that I feel sick to my stomach after using. I think it's the Nevanac in combination with the other two that might be causing my stomach to feel bad. Wondering if anyone else has had a similar side e ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
After cataract surgery, I was prescribed Nevanac and Omnipred. The surgery definitely corrected the dimness of vision caused by the cataract, but it left my visual acuity in that eye very reduced. The opthalmologist put me on a second course of Nevanac, suggesting that continued inflammation was the cause of the reduced acuity. After several weeks, with no improvement, I chose to discontinue the ... Show Full Comment
