Careprost Eye Drops
About Careprost eye drops:
Careprost contains Bimatoprost which belongs to a group of medicines known as prostamides. It is an anti-glaucoma preparation, used to reduce high pressure in the eye. Eyes contain a clear, watery liquid that feeds the inside of the eye. Liquid is frequently being drained out of the eye and new liquid is made to replace this. If the liquid cannot drain out quickly, the pressure inside the eye builds up. Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor has directed you. This medicine should only be applied to the eye. Consult your doctor for advice. It is not recommended for children and adolescents under the age of 18 years. Remove your contact lenses before applying the medicine.
HOW CAREPROST WORKS:
Careprost works by increasing the amount of liquid that is drained which reduces the pressure inside the eye. If the high pressure is not reduced, it could lead to a disease called glaucoma and eventually damage your sight. It reduces intraocular pressure (IOP) in humans by causing an increase in outflow of the aqueous humour via the trabecular meshwork and uveoscleral pathways. Careprost Eye Drop is a medicine used to reduce pressure in the eyes in adults with glaucoma and high pressure in the eye. If the pressure in your eye is too high it can damage your sight, potentially leading to blindness. It works by helping fluid flow from inside the eye into the blood.
The active ingredient of Careprost Eye drops is Bimatoprost 0.03% w/v.
DIRECTION OF USE:
Wash your hands before the application of drops into the eyes. First, tilt your head in a backward direction while sitting or lying down on the bed. Gently pull down your lower eyelid with your index finger then squeeze the drops into the eyes. Close your eyes for a few seconds, do not blink or open your eyes in between – otherwise, the liquid may drain from the eyes. Do not take double dose at a same time.
