What is Careprost?
Careprost 0.03 Eye Drops is an Ophthalmic solution that helps reduce pressure in the eyes of adults with Glaucoma.
High pressure in your eye can damage your sight, eventually leading to total blindness.
There are many types of Glaucoma, and in every condition, the optic nerve connecting the eye to the brain gets damaged, usually due to high eye pressure.
The high pressure in the eye results from inadequate secretion or drainage of fluids (aqueous humour) within the eyes.
Bimatoprost, which is Careprost's active ingredient, helps relieve the pressure by helping fluid flow from inside the eye into the blood.
Besides being a well-accepted treatment for Glaucoma, Careprost eye drops is also an effective medicine for eyelash growth.
This FDA-approved medication is a Prostaglandin Analogue and requires a valid prescription from a doctor.
Sun Pharmaceuticals manufacture Careprost, which is often referred to as Careprost Bimatoprost Ophthalmic Solution.
Uses of Careprost
Careprost eye drops and its active ingredient Bimatoprost is an effective medicine for three medical conditions - Glaucoma, Intraocular Hypertension, and Eyelashes Hypotrichosis.
Glaucoma results from damage to the optic nerve due to high pressure in the eye.
As the disease progresses, irreversible blindness and the slow loss of retinal ganglion cells happen.
Patients suffering from Glaucoma can use it alone or with other eye drops. However, it must be used only in the affected eye.
Bimatoprost 0.03 eye drops decrease the high intraocular pressure caused by Ocular Hypertension.
Too much fluid accumulating in the eye can lead to high pressure, and Careprost helps drain the excess fluid.
High ocular pressure can cause permanent eyesight loss by damaging the optic nerve if left untreated.
Eyelashes Hypotrichosis is a disorder in which a patient has insufficient eyelashes.
The leading cause of Hypotrichosis is genetics, but based on the patient's history, there can also be other reasons.
Bimatoprost is an Ophthalmic Prostamide analog approved by the FDA in the USA for treating eyelash hypotrichosis.
Bimatoprost Careprost promotes the growth of eyelashes and makes them longer, thicker, and darker when applied as an eyelash serum.
How does Careprost work
Careprost Eye Drops 3 ml is for external use only.
Bimatoprost, a Prostaglandin Analogue, is a primary ingredient of Careprost eye drop.
The ophthalmic solution works by increasing the outflow of aqueous humor (fluid in the eye) and, in the process, lowering the increased eye pressure.
Initially, the eyedrop was designed to treat people with Glaucoma.
However, researchers and patients soon noticed that Bimatoprost eye drops promote the formation of eyelashes by increasing the density and length of hairs throughout the growth phase.
As a result, Careprost has also become a popular cosmetic eye serum assisting in treating eyelash Hypotrichosis.
Since it is a prescription-based medication, your doctor will take certain eye tests before starting the treatment.
Your doctor will determine the appropriate dosage based on your age, body weight, and the results of the eye tests.
It is better to stick to the doctor's advice and not get carried away while using this eye medicine.
Do not stop using Careprost without consulting your doctor, as the pressure within the eye may increase again.
Note: Before the doctor starts the treatment, inform your doctor if you have undergone any eye surgery (such as cataract, etc.).
