Bimatoprost, an ophthalmic drug found in BIMAT EYE DROPS 3ML, treats elevated or increased pressure in the eyes. The condition is called Glaucoma, in which the optic nerve is harmed. That causes an unexpected rise in ocular pressure.
Patients with short eyelashes also use it. This medicine lengthens patients’ eyelashes, enhancing their density and darkening their color.
A 3ml bottle of Bimat Eye drop typically costs about Rs.368. Ajanta manufactures the product, and the Generic name is Bimatoprost Ophthalmic.
How to use
Properly wash your hands before and after applying BIMAT EYE DROPS 3ML. Put your head back when lying down. Create a pocket by gently pulling the lower eyelid with your index finger. Put as many drops into the lower eyelid’s pocket as the doctor recommends. For one to two minutes, don’t open your eyes. After usage, replace the outer cap. Avoid touching the tip of the container to the eye, eyelids, or any nearby areas as this could contaminate the eye drops.
The usual dosage is one application per day for persons with short eyelashes who want to take the medication to lengthen them. Apply the solution to the upper eyelid borders using the applicator available with the eyedrop to create a thin layer. If you draw too much solution, wipe it with tissue paper. Always follow your doctor’s instructions to ensure the medication works as intended.
Your doctor will decide how long the treatment will last, and you must follow his or her instructions.
How it works
A variant of prostaglandin called bimatoprost is found in BIMAT EYE DROPS 3ML. It is generally employed to treat excessive ocular pressure. It boosts aqueous humor, the liquid in the eye, and lowers ocular pressure. Elevated pressure can cause Glaucoma. Also, losing sight is possible if the pressure gets too severe. Only apply BIMAT EYE DROPS 3ML to the affected eye; avoid getting any on the healthy eye.
Although uncommon, some typical adverse effects may occur for patients that use this medication. These include symptoms like feeling as though something strange is in your eye, dryness or moisture in the eyes, burning sensation, and disorientation. These are common in cases where a patient takes this medication for the first time. When the body adjusts to the medicine, these negative effects will subside.
Inform the consulting doctor as soon as possible if they continue or get worse. Call your doctor immediately if you suffer any serious adverse effects, including eye redness, an acute pain sensation, unusual vision changes, or any other complications not listed here.
If you are allergic or sensitive to eye drops, any antibiotics, or sulfa medications, avoid taking them. Tell your physician about all the prescription and over-the-counter medicines you use, including any eye prescriptions, aspirin-containing products, and vitamins. Before beginning the dosage, tell your doctor if you have renal issues, uveitis, macular oedema, are pregnant, or are lactating. A dose adjustment may be necessary. Always let the doctor know if you are using any other eye medications. If you use contact lenses, take them out before applying the eye drop. You can use them again 15 minutes after applying.
