Drug interactions with bimatoprost for ophthalmic use (more information) There have been no official studies of drug interactions. The manufacturer states that pharmacokinetic interactions are unlikely.
People who use eye drops occasionally run the risk of developing bacterial keratitis, a serious corneal infection that can quickly cause blindness. Bimatoprost may also darken the eyelid skin, and cause eyelashes to grow longer and thicker and darken in color. The iris, which is the colored portion of the eye, could brown due to bimatoprost. Before using bimatoprost, take out your contact lenses. You can put them back in after 15 minutes. Some people who took bimatoprost experienced macular edema, or swelling of the macula of the eye. Never touch the bottle's tip with your hands, eyes, or any other objects. Prevent contamination. Occasionally, especially in cases where a person has a corneal disease, it results from users accidentally contaminating eye drop bottles. Tell your doctor if you experience these changes. Describe any changes to your vision to your doctor. If these changes take place, you can still receive treatment because they are not harmful. These conditions may be reversible after treatment is stopped. This modification may last forever.
