Alcon Brimo Eye Drop


Overview

Introduction of Alcon Brimo Eye Drop

Alcon Brimo Eye Drop is used in the treatment of ocular hypertension (pressure in the eye) and glaucoma. It helps to lower high pressure in the eye and reduces the risk of vision loss. This medicine may be used alone or in combination with another eye drop that reduces pressure in the eye.

Alcon Brimo Eye Drop is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by the doctor. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before using the medication. Avoid touching the tip of the dropper to any surface as it may contaminate the eye drop. For best results, use it daily in the evening or at night.

Using Alcon Brimo Eye Drop may cause burning sensation, itching, or temporary blurring of the eyes. If they persist or worsen, inform your doctor.
