There seems to be something wrong with the chat system today but we can use this system to work on your question.

Lumigan is an excellent drop that lowers the pressure inside your eye with almost no side effects.

Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 6 years ago.

The most important thing to do in early on in your glaucoma treatment is to make sure that you use your drops as directed and work with your ophthalmologist to keep your eye pressure (IOP) in the range desired.

Your ophthalmologist will monitor your visual fields and the health of your optic nerve and with appropriate therapy and medical care you should maintain excellent vision for your entire life.

Does this make sense to you?
