Product Information

Careprost 0.03% is an ophthalmic solution used in the treatment of glaucoma which is characterized by an increased intraocular pressure due to a fluid build up in the eye. The increased intraocular pressure can damage optic nerve fibers leading out the back of the eye then to the brain. The damage in optic nerve fibers can cause a gradual loss of vision, affecting peripheral vision first, then leading to total eye blindness.

Careprost contains 300mcg/ml of Bimatoprost which is a synthetic analogue of prostamide that have specific actions on various parts of the body, including a powerful eye pressure reducing action. Since Bimatoprost is a synthetic analogue of prostamide, it then possesses the same action. It helps treat glaucoma by binding to prostamide receptors increasing the drainage of the fluid build-up by lowering resistance to outflow and opening up the drainage route called trabecular mesh. This then leads to a balanced flow of fluid out of the eye and the lowering of the intraocular pressure. Careprost is also used in lowering intraocular pressure to treat ocular hypotension.

Careprost is also used for the treatment of eyelash hypotrichosis. Eyelash hypotrichosis is a condition where eyelash growth is abnormal or the amount of eyelashes is inadequate. Careprost increases growth of eyelashes, and increases eyelash length, thickness and darkness. This eyelash enhancement effect of Bimatoprost was once observed as a side effect, but is now a desirable effect, driving manufacturers to develop eye drops intended for this effect. Careprost works in treating eyelash hypotrichosis by acting on prostaglandin receptors in the hair follicles, stimulating resting follicles to turn into the growing follicle state.

Manufacturer

Careprost is manufactured by Sun Pharmaceuticals

Before using Careprost, make sure to remove contact lenses and hands are clean. Instill one drop of Careprost to the affected eye, once a day, preferably at night. Hold the eye open with clean fingers and carefully squeeze a drop to the eye. Close and reopen eyes gently to help spread the medication. As prescribed by a physician, the use of this medication must be continued for several months or years to maintain a normal eye pressure.
