How should Lumigan be used for growing eyelashes?
You should use your Lumigan eye drops 300mcg/ml once nightly, by applying to the to the base of the upper eye lashes of each eye. (An applicator is not supplied but a very fine eyeliner brush is suitable) Do not apply to the lower lid.
Also avoid touching other areas with Lumigan eye drops, as this may result in unwanted hair growth. Before applying your Lumigan eye drops, ensure that your face is clean and makeup and contact lenses are removed. If you are using an eyeliner brush as an applicator, ensure that it is clean before each application.
Do not use this medicine while wearing contact lenses. Lumigan may contain a preservative that can discolor soft contact lenses. Wait at least 15 minutes after using this medicine before putting in your contact lenses.
To apply the Lumigan eye drops:
Do not touch the tip of the eye dropper or place it directly on your eye. A contaminated dropper can infect your eye, which could lead to serious vision problems.
Do not use Lumigan eye drops if the liquid has changed colors or has particles in it. Call your pharmacist for new medicine.
Store Lumigan ophthalmic solution in a refrigerator or at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Do not freeze. Keep the bottle tightly closed when not in use.
Tell your doctor at once if you have an eye injury, if you develop an eye infection, or if you plan to have eye surgery.
