Lumigan (bimatoprost) for Glaucoma, Open Angle: “I’m 84, if that matters. About a year ago I experienced a sudden (over 6 months) simultaneous increase in intraocular pressure from about 18 to 31. Started using Lumigan 0.01% one drop daily at night. IOC pressure dropped to 16-18 and has stayed in that range. No side effects or discomfort.”

For Intraocular Hypertension: “I have used Latisse for many years, and I’ve been very pleased by the results. The online pharmacy from which I bought Latisse recently was sold, and the new owners immediately raised the price. While searching for another source, I found a coupon for the generic version sold at Wal-Mart. Of course, I tried it out and bought two bottles for quite a bargain price.After finishing the first bottle, my eyelashes are dramatically less full, and much shorter than they were when I was using Latisse. The difference is so startling, I wonder if the bottle even contains what the label says it does. Would love to have the second bottle analyzed by a lab!In any case, I’m going back to Latisse. I may not even use the second bottle.”

Lumigan (bimatoprost) for Glaucoma, Open Angle: “This is a very expensive eye drop and the company only puts enough in the bottle to get exactly 28 to 30 days. You can easily run out early. I’m sure it wouldn’t bankrupt the company to put enough to get a full month out of it. Greedy I guess. I told my doctor to prescribe a different eye drop. I’m happy now.”

Lumigan (bimatoprost) for Glaucoma, Open Angle: “I’ve been using Lumigan for about 12 years. Of all the different drops out there (and I’ve tried them all), Lumigan is the most effective at reducing my IOP. I also currently use Alphagan and Timoptic. Side effects, for me, include some redness and dryness of the eyes, darkening of the skin around the eyes, and longer eyelashes. My eyes were quite dark to begin with so I can’t comment on the darkening of the iris Lumigan and other drops in its class are known for.”

Lumigan (bimatoprost) for Glaucoma, Open Angle: “Had severe shortness of breath, weakness, tiredness, loss of voice. Would never recommend this product! I was in and out of hospitals for months.”

Lumigan (bimatoprost) for Glaucoma, Open Angle: “my eye had a 34 IOP, yesterday’s it was at 16 so Lumigan has been very effective. I apply my drops in the morning which is not the normal but work for my life schedule. My doctor doesn’t approve but can’t give me a good reason why it should be applied before bedtime, as it’s obviously working well.my ask: it would be nice to have a view window on the bottle as it’s very difficult to know how much remains.”
