Careprost Ophthalmic Solution (Bimatoprost) is an agent that helps improve the length, fullness, and darkness of eyelashes. The active ingredient, Bimatoprost, is also often prescribed to alleviate intraocular pressure in individuals suffering from glaucoma or ocular hypertension. Elevated intraocular pressure may likely lead to glaucomatous field loss and the higher the level of pressure, the greater the probability of optic nerve damage as well as visual field loss. Bimatoprost helps lower intraocular pressure by regulating the amount of fluid that flows through both the trabecular meshwork and uveoscleral pathway. As aqueous production and drainage stabilize, pressure in the eye is reduced thus minimizing the risks associated with high intraocular pressure.
