How does Alphagan Eye Drops work?
The active ingredient in Alphagan Eye Drops is brimonidine tartrate which is a part of a group of medications called alpha-2 adrenergic receptor agonists, and it has the ability to release pressure that may be contained in the eyeball. It does this by releasing the fluid that may have built up in there, allowing this liquid to flow out of the eye chamber.
The solution also contains inactive ingredients like polyvinyl alcohol, benzalkonium chloride, sodium chloride, citric acid, sodium citrate, and purified water. This treatment can be used alone, as well as alongside other drops or medicine that is prescribed or approved by the doctor.
If the patient wears soft contact lenses, they are advised to only use them at least 10 minutes after applying this treatment. It should be used three times per day on the affected eye/s, approximately 8 hours apart. When eye drops are applied, the patient should close that eye for 2 to 3 minutes with the head tipped down without squinting or blinking. A finger should be gently pressed into the corner of the eye to prevent the liquid from draining into the tear duct. 5 minutes between drop application is recommended, and if any other eye drops are prescribed, there should be a 5-minute gap between their application.
How long does Alphagan Eye Drops last?
Topical administration of the brimonidine solution lowers the intraocular pressure, and has a rapid onset of action, with the optimal or peak ocular hypotensive effect happening around two hours after application, with the duration of effect being around 12 hours or more.
Any patients who have demonstrated hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients in Alphagan Eye Drops should not use this product.
