Lumigan eye drops can treat open-angle glaucoma where there is high pressure in the eye from excess fluid. When used as eye drops, Lumigan helps improve the out flow of aqueous fluid (eye fluid) to stabilize pressure in the eye and relieve symptoms of glaucoma.
Apply Lumiga eye drops once a day in the evening, or as directed by your pharmacist and doctor. If in doubt read the paper work and follow the application directions given to you by doctor and pharmacist.
Take care to be avoid contamination by washing your hands before applying the eye drops. Take extra care to not let the tip come into contact with the eye or any surface.
Lumigan, also known by it's generic name Bimatoprost contains preservatives that could effect your contacts. If you wear contact lenses remove them before administering the eye drops and wait 15 minutes before putting the lenses back in.
Some patients suffering from glaucoma have multiple eye drop medications. You can use Lumigan with other medications if you wait at least 5 minutes between applications.
Speak with your doctor about any prior medical problems, known allergies, and any current medication you are taking to avoid complications.
Using Lumigan eye drops may upset your vision initially. Take care to understand the effect of the eye drops before operating heavy machinery or driving a vehicle.
