What is Careprost Eye Drops?

Topic created · 1 Posts · 1 Views
  • Careprost eye drops contain the active ingredient bimatoprost and are used to treat glaucoma by reducing pressure within the eyes. Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that can damage the optic nerve and lead to vision loss if left untreated. Careprost works by increasing the drainage of fluid (aqueous humor) from the eyes, thereby lowering intraocular pressure.

    When used as directed by a doctor, Careprost Eye Drops typically begin lowering eye pressure within 2-4 weeks of starting treatment. The full pressure-lowering effect is usually achieved in about 12 weeks. The most common side effects of Careprost include eye redness, itching, and changes in iris pigmentation. Patients should use Careprost regularly as prescribed, even if symptoms improve, as discontinuing the drops can lead to a rise in eye pressure and potential vision loss. Consulting an eye doctor is recommended if side effects persist or worsen.
