What is it, and how do you use it?
The antiglaucoma medication Lumigan is used. It's a member of the prostamides class of medicines.
Eye pressure that is too high can be reduced using lumigan eye drops. Glaucoma is a condition brought on by this high pressure. If excessive pressure is not decreased, it can eventually harm your vision.
A clear, watery fluid is present in your eye, feeding the inside tissues. Every time fluid is evacuated from the eye, more fluid is produced to fill the gap.
When the liquid cannot be drained out quickly enough, Pressure inside the eye increases. As more fluid is evacuated, lumigan becomes more effective. As a result, the pressure inside the eye is reduced.
What is the usage?
Only the eye should receive lumigan. Use lumigan precisely as directed by your doctor at all times. If you're unsure, speak with your doctor or pharmacist.
Each eye that requires treatment should get one drop of lumigan in the evening on a regular basis.
