Product Description

Careprost belongs to a group of medications named prostamides. It is an anti-glaucoma drug. It is used to reduce the high pressure inside the eyes. This drug may be used either alone or combined with some other drops named beta blockers, which have the same target: to reduce pressure.

The active ingredient is Bimatoprost.

Common use.

Our eyes contain a clear liquid that nourrishes them. It is being eliminated constantly from the eyes and a new liquid is formed to replace the other one and so on. In case if this liquid cannot be eliminated quickly enough, the pressure inside the eye grows significantly. And this is when we use Careprost. Its main principle of action consists in increasing the quantity of the eliminated liquid, thus reducing the eye pressure. If the latter is not reduced it may lead to glaucoma and vision impairment.
