- Wash your hands and face thoroughly with soap and water. Be sure that all makeup is removed.
- Do not let the tip of the bottle or applicator touch your fingers or anything else.
- Hold the applicator horizontally, and place 1 drop of topical bimatoprost on the area closest to the tip, but not on the tip itself.
- Immediately move the applicator carefully across the skin of the upper eyelid at the base of the eyelashes (where the eyelashes meet the skin) going from the inner part of your lash line to the outer part, just as you would apply liquid eyeliner. The area should feel lightly moist but without runoff.
- Blot any excess solution with a tissue.
- Discard the applicator after applying to one eyelid.
- Repeat these steps for other eye using a new applicator.
Before using topical bimatoprost,
- tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to bimatoprost or any other medications.
- you should know that bimatoprost is also available as Lumigan®, a solution to be instilled in the eyes to treat increased pressure in the eyes. If you use the topical solution and the eyedrops together, you may receive too much medication. Talk to your doctor about using topical bimatoprost if you are also using the eyedrops.
- tell your doctor and pharmacist what other prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you are taking or plan to take. Be sure to mention any medications for increased pressure in the eyes such as latanoprost (Xalatan) and travoprost (Travatan). Your doctor may need to change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for side effects.
- tell your doctor if you have or have ever had swelling of the eyes, a missing or torn lens, or eye pressure problems. Call your doctor if you develop any eye condition such as an injury or infection or if you have surgery on your eyes during your treatment with topical bimatoprost.
- tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding. If you become pregnant while using topical bimatoprost, call your doctor.
- you should know that topical bimatoprost contains benzalkonium chloride, which can be absorbed by soft contact lenses. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before applying topical bimatoprost and put them back in 15 minutes later.
- you should know that it is possible for differences in eyelash length, thickness, fullness, color, number of eyelash hairs, and direction of eyelash growth to occur between eyes. These differences will usually go away if you stop using topical bimatoprost.
