What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    Dosage for corneal refractive surgery:

    Do not use Voltaren Ophthalmic if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in the medication.


    • Before you begin using Voltaren Ophthalmic, inform your doctor of:
      • All the medications you use, including other eye drops and ointments
      • Your allergies
      • Your health problems and past medical history
      • Of your pregnancy or breastfeeding status
    • Healing may be slowed or prolonged with Voltaren Ophthalmic.
    • Keratitis can occur with Voltaren Ophthalmic.
    • The risk of corneal adverse events may be increased in patients who have complicated eye surgeries, corneal denervation, corneal epithelial defects, diabetes, ocular surface disease (e.g., dry eye syndrome), rheumatoid arthritis, or repeat eye surgeries within a short period of time; therefore, caution should be used with Voltaren Ophthalmic treatment.
    • Using topical NSAIDs for more than 24 hours before surgery or more than 14 days after surgery may increase a patient's risk for corneal adverse events.
    • Patients with bleeding problems or using other medications that can prolong bleeding time should use Voltaren Ophthalmic with caution.

    Side Effects

    Burning and stinging are common side effects of Voltaren Ophthalmic. Other side effects can also occur. Contact your doctor right away if you develop side effects that become bothersome or persistent.
