LATISSE® is an ophthalmic solution containing 0.03 percent bimatoprost. It is applied to the skin of the upper eyelid margin only. It works by causing hair growth within the skin of the eyelid margin to help thicken and lengthen the eyelashes. It is applied with an applicator. Continued use is necessary, and discontinuation of the medication will return the eyelashes to their pretreatment state over the course of weeks to months.
Patients with glaucoma should consult their physician prior to taking this medication. The most common side affect is itching, which is seen in approximately four percent of users. Other side affects include pigmentation of the upper eyelids, which is usually reversible as well as potential brown pigmentation of the iris. Redness, dryness and irritation of the eye also have been reported.
