Bimat Eye Drops (Bimatoprost 0.03%) are eye drops given to alleviate intraocular pressure in patients diagnosed with glaucoma. By alleviating the pressure the risks of blindness associated with this condition are significantly reduced.
In addition to aiding patients suffering from glaucoma, this product can also be useful for those with hypotrichosis of the eyelashes (eyelashes that are too short), as when it is applied to eyelashes, it can encourage growth and thickening.
