Aroflur Eye Drop

Prescription Required

Product introduction

Aroflur Eye Drop is a combination medicine used in the treatment of dry eyes. It relieves burning and discomfort caused by dry eyes. It works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation.

Aroflur Eye Drop is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Wash your hands before and after application. Hold the dropper close to the eye without touching it. Gently squeeze the dropper and place the medicine inside the lower eyelid and wipe off the extra liquid. Do not use more than you need, it will not clear your condition faster and may only increase the risk of side effects.

Using the medicine may cause few common side effects such as burning sensation, irritation, and stinging. These are temporary and usually resolve on their own. Inform your doctor if they persist for a longer duration. Do not wear contact lenses while using it.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way this medicine works, but let your doctor know of the other medicines you are using. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should first consult their doctors before using the medicine.

Benefits of Aroflur Ophthalmic Solution

In Treatment of Dry eyes

Dry eyes is a condition in which your eyes do not produce enough tears to keep them moist. It can be caused by sitting in front of the computer for a long time, certain medications or environmental conditions. Aroflur Eye Drop adds moisture to your eyes and keeps them lubricated. This gives relief from burning sensation and discomfort due to dryness of the eyes. Aroflur Eye Drop also helps reduce pain and swelling in the eyes. If you wear soft contact lenses, you should remove them before applying Aroflur Eye Drop.

How Aroflur Ophthalmic Solution works

Aroflur Eye Drop is a combination of two medicines: flurbiprofen and hydroxypropylmethylcellulose which relieve dry and irritated eyes. Flurbiprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that causes pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose is a lubricating formulation similar to natural tears. It provides temporary relief of burning and discomfort due to dryness of the eye.

Quick tips

  • Aroflur Eye Drop is prescribed to maintain necessary lubrication so your eyes don’t get dry and irritated.
  • Use it twice a day (in the morning and the evening). If your symptoms are particularly severe, your doctor may suggest you use them up to four times a day.
  • Wait for at least 5-10 minutes before delivering the next medication in the same eye to avoid dilution of this medicine.
  • To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface.
  • Apply pressure on the corner of the eye (close to the nose) for about 1 minute, immediately after putting the medication. This will prevent the medication from draining out. Try not to blink or rub your eye.
  • Make sure to use it within 4 weeks of opening the bottle.
