What is it for?
Careprost (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic) are approved for two uses. They can be used to lower high pressure in the eye caused by glaucoma, ocular hypertension or other eye conditions. This helps to prevent damage to the eyes. Sometimes, people whose eyelashes are too short will be prescribed this medication to help their eyelashes to grow thicker and darker, giving them a more natural look.

How do you use it?
Careprost (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic) comes as a solution. The right way to use it depends on what you are using it for. Ask your doctor if you aren't sure about how to administer it. If you are treating glaucoma or other eye conditions, it should be applied directly to the affected eye or eyes, using the dropper provided. The application procedure is the same as for any other eye drops. Your doctor will tell you how often to apply it, and you must do exactly as you are told.

The application procedure is different for patients treating short eyelashes. You do not apply it to the eyes for this use. Instead, you use a special applicator brush and apply it to the skin on your upper eyelid. There is no need to apply it to the lower eyelids. It is also important that you don't get any of the solution in your eyes, and to make sure that you clean away any of the solution which may have been accidentally applied beyond the skin of the upper eyelid. This is to prevent your skin and eyes from becoming discoloured.

Any side effects?
Careprost (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic) can sometimes cause a few side effects. However, you don't need to be that concerned about them, as most people will only experience mild side effects. Possible side effects include:

  • Discolouration of the eye
  • An itchy or burning sensation affecting the eyes
  • Dryness of the eyes or watery eyes
  • A dizzy sensation
  • Feeling as if there is something in the eye

Tell your doctor about any side effects that you notice. It is worth knowing that serious side effects can also occur. Go and see your doctor straight away if you notice light sensitivity, swelling of the eyelid, a discharge from the eye, changes in vision, redness or any other side effects which are not mentioned here.


*Precautions*
Careprost (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic) eye drops can change the eye colour to brown. If you are using these eye drops to treat one eye, it is important to know that if you only treat one eye, there might be a difference between the colours of your eyes after treatment. The eye drops may also cause your eyelashes to grow longer. Ask your doctor about this if you are concerned.

If you have a history of eye problems, you must tell your doctor before you start using these eye drops.
