Bimat Eye Drops (Bimatoprost)
What is Bimat Eye Drops (Bimatoprost) used for?
Bimat Eye Drops (Bimatoprost) is an ophthalmic medication used to treat patients who are suffering from ocular hypertension or open angle glaucoma. It operates by increasing the amount of fluid drained from the eye to reduce pressure within the eye. This can prevent symptoms such as eye pain, loss of vision, or potential damage to the optic nerve. This medication may also be used to strengthen and lengthen the eyelashes when applied using an applicator brush. Your doctor may recommend its use for the treatment of other unlisted conditions, as well.
How should I use Bimat Eye Drops (Bimatoprost)?
Bimat Eye Drops (Bimatoprost) should be used according to your doctor`s instructions to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. One drop is typically administered to the affected eye once daily, but your particular directions will depend on your age, weight, health condition, and the severity of your symptoms. To administer the drops gently shake the bottle to mix its contents, tilt the head backward, pull down the lower lid of the eye, and dispense one drop into the pouch that is formed. Slowly close the eye to spread the medication and keep it closed for thirty seconds to allow the medication to be absorbed into the eye. Observe the medication prior to use to make sure it is not cloudy or discoloured as this may indicate contamination. Ask your pharmacist or doctor any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct administration.
