Resolved Question:

HELLO, I'M 63 YRS OLD & HAD RX ON BOTH EYES 17 YRS AGO. 5 MTHS AGO I HAD A LAZER PROCEDURE CALLED SLT ON MY LEFT EYE FOR HIGH PRESSURE. SINCE THEN I'VE HAD EYE PAIN & HEADACHES. PRESCRIPTION XIBROM RELIEVES PAIN BUT INSURANCE DOES NOT COVER IT, TOO EXPENSIVE. IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE CHEAPER THAT WORKS LIKE XIBROM???? THANKS YOU VERY MUCH FOR ANY INFO. ARMANDO

Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer

Xibrom( bromfenac) being non steroidal anti inflammatory, reduces pain and at the same time does not rise the intraocular pressure. Other NSAIDs available in the market with similar action but lesser cost are - diclofenac eye drops ( voltaren ophth eye drops) or flurbiprofen eye drops , 1 drop 4 times a day.

You need to continue with the anti-glaucoma eye drops as per the advise given by your ophthalmologist.

Thanks and best wishes
