Lumigan (generic name: Bimatoprost) is an ophthalmic solution proven to lower IOP in people with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
Lumigan eye drops lower the pressure in the eye by helping the flow of fluid out of the eye chamber.
Lumigan eye drops can be used alone or together with other eyedrops/medicines to lower raised pressure within your eyes.
Follow the directions for using this medicine provided by your doctor. Use Lumigan exactly as directed.
Your doctor will tell you how many drops you need to use each day.
The usual dose of Lumigan eye drops is one drop in the affected eye(s) once daily, given in the evening.
Use Lumigan eye drops every day, at about the same time each day, unless your doctor tells you otherwise. Using your eye drops at the same time each day will have the best effect on your eye pressure. It will also help you remember when to use the eye drops.
If you are using more than one eye drop product, wait 5 minutes before using the second product.
If you are being changed from one eye drop to another, follow your doctor's instructions carefully as to when to stop the old drops and when to start the new drops.
If you accidentally put several drops in your eye(s), immediately rinse your eye(s) with warm water.
Do not put the eye drops into your eye(s) while you are wearing soft contact lenses. The preservative in Lumigan eye drops (benzalkonium chloride) may be deposited in soft contact lenses. You can put your soft contact lenses back into your eyes 15 minutes after you have used Lumigan eye drops.
Tell your doctor before using Lumigan, if:
you are allergic to any medicines;
you have liver, kidney or breathing problems;
you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
