DESCRIPTION

Lumigan (Bimatoprost) is an Rx medication that belongs to a class of medications called prostamides that is used to reduce the pressure inside the eye for people with open-angle glaucoma or intraocular hypertension (increased pressure in the eye). Lowering high pressure inside the eye can help to prevent blindness.

Fluid is constantly being formed and drained out of the eye, but when this fluid does not drain out of the eye properly, pressure inside the eye increases. Lumigan works by increasing the flow of fluid out of the eye and it starts to work within 4 hours after being instilled in the eye. Lumigan is also used to improve fullness, length, and color of the eyelashes in people with a condition called hypotrichosis, a lack of eyelash growth.

Apply this medication in the affected eye(s), usually once a day in the evening, or as directed by your doctor. Do not use Lumigan more often because it will not work as well. To apply eye drops, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface.

Lumigan contains a preservative that may stain contact lenses. If you are wearing contact lenses, remove them before using your eye drops. Wait at least 15 minutes after each dose before putting your lenses back in.

Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place one drop into the pouch. Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes. Place one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose) and apply gentle pressure. This will prevent the medication from draining out. Try not to blink and do not rub your eye. Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed.

Do not rinse the dropper. Replace the dropper cap after each use, and keep the cap tightly closed.

If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least 5 minutes before applying other medications. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the eye. Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Remember to use it at the same time each day. It is important to continue using Lumigan even if you feel well. Most people with glaucoma or high pressure in the eye do not have symptoms.
