In the history of medical science, over the recent years, glaucoma is an alarming epidemic and the number of people affected by it has been exponentially increasing of the past couple of years. Glaucoma is nothing but a condition where the fluid that is present in the eye increases which in turn causes the intraocular pressure to increase. It eventually leads to the damage of the nerve fibres, as a result of which the affected person may eventually lose his vision and turn blind with the passing time. So one can very well understand the gravity of the situation.
There are various ways of treating glaucoma, some are expensive like laser surgery and some are very much time consuming which may run the risk of aggravating the affect even furthermore. Bimatoprost ophthalmic is a easier and much less expensive way of getting rid of glaucoma effectively and efficiently. It is basically used as an eye drop. Bimatoprost eye drops are also used to treat ocular hypertension. It helps in reducing the intraocular pressure and thus increases the outflow of aqueous fluid from the eyes.
Bimatoprost drops 0.03 is to be used once every day followed by one drop of bimatoprost ophthalmic every day in the evening for better results. But one must be careful while using bimatoprost ophthalmic and must follow the instructions carefully. Now-a-days many people are
using bimatoprost eye drops after being prescribed by the doctor. If one forgets to use it, then he or she should use it immediately instead of overdosing the other day.
