Lumigan is an effective and reliable medication when it comes to the treatment of high pressure inside the eyes or open-angle glaucoma. This medicine contains 0.03% of Bimatoprost that helps in treating the condition of people who are suffering from Glaucoma in which your optic nerve gets damaged due to the pressure of fluid accumulated inside the eye.
Glaucoma is a condition in the eye where the optic nerve gets damaged due to the internal pressure created by the fluid inside the eye. There are five types of conditions in Glaucoma, such as Open-Angle (chronic), Angle-Closure (Acute), normal tension, Congenital, and secondary. If left untreated, the conditions might get worse with each passing day, as the pressure in the eye keeps building up. The pressure which is known as intraocular pressure (IOP), can damage the optic nerve, which is responsible for sending images to your brain.
When you put the Lumigan eye Drops into your eyes in the prescribed dosage, it counter-balances the cycle by increasing the process of depletion of the liquid. This mechanism brings down intraocular pressure off the eyes and enhances the uveoscleral flow. The medicine begins to show its effect after 4 hours after using a few drops in the eye and stays up to 24 hours.
If you are using this medicine to grow your eyelashes, then this medicine containing the Bimatoprost solution can be really effective. It promotes the growth of the hair follicle of the eyelashes. However, it is suggested to use the medicine only on the upper-lid and not the lower lid.
Although Lumigan is clinically tested and FDA approved, which makes it safe and reliable to use, there might be few instances where some people have experienced side-effects like increased sensitivity to light, change in eye color, body aches, and redness of the eye, and itching of the eyes. Therefore, do let your doctor know if you are allergic to any of its components.
