How Should You Take Bimatoprost Ophthalmic Solution?

By now, most women are more than aware of this new product on the market that claims to help enhance the length and the number of eyelashes. This may seem like a strange and somewhat luxurious product to have been cleared by the FDA, but the truth is that it was meant for other purposes. One of the positive side effects of bimatoprost ophthalmic solution was that it made eyelashes grow longer and faster.

If you are taking bimatoprost ophthalmic solution in order to grow eyelashes, and not as part of an eye care regimen (especially for glaucoma), then you should still pay close attention to the right ways to take it. Here are a few tips that will help to make sure that you get the most out of this medication.

1. Obviously, talk to your doctor before taking bimatoprost ophthalmic solution. This is a serious drug and one that does have side effects, especially if you have pre-existing conditions.

2. This is not an oral drug. These are drops that are put in the eye, and they must be used on a regular basis. If you miss a dose, you should take the next one as soon as possible and never “double up.”

3. Tilt your head and put the drops into your lower lid, followed by closing your eyes for one to two minutes.

4. Do not think that by using more of this, you will get better or more results. Always stick with the recommended dosage.

5. Do not follow up with any other kind of eye drops for at least five minutes after using bimatoprost ophthalmic solution.

6. Be particularly careful with sensitivity to light and night driving while you are using this medication.

It goes without saying that this is a medication only for adults, and it should never be used by someone who is pregnant or nursing. If you have existing eye problems, then talk to your eye doctor first. There is no amount of eyelashes that is worth risking the safety of your eyes.

I found that by using bimatoprost ophthalmic solution on a regular basis, I was able to double the number of eyelashes that I have, and this gives me a much more pleasing look around the eyes. I no longer have to wear mascara and eyeliner and feel that I can now be very proud of the way my eyes look.
