Who should use Lumigan?

Lumigan is intended for people experiencing increased pressure in the eyes, called ocular hypertension which causes open-angle glaucoma, a combination of high ocular pressure, damage to the optic nerve, plus loss of vision. For people who suffer from decreased or inadequate eyelash growth, called hypotrichosis, and want to increase lash length and fullness, the active ingredient in Lumigan (bimatoprost) is available in Latisse, which is packaged especially for this purpose.

You should use Lumigan only if you have overall good eye health, and are free of inflammation and infection. Women who are not pregnant or nursing should ask their doctors about using Lumigan.
