How does Lumigan work?
Lumigan is used to relieve the high pressure felt inside of the eye, mostly due to glaucoma, but can also be a symptom of other eye diseases like ocular hypertension.

Once normal pressure is maintained, the uncomfortable feeling is gone and it also avoids the potential result of untreated glaucoma, mainly either reduced or outright lost vision.

One drop should be placed on each affected eye, and then the patient must close their eyes for 2 to 3 minutes.
