    Expert advice for Bimatoprost

    • Your sight may become blurred for a short time just after using bimatoprost. You should not drive or use machines until your sight is clear again.
    • Do not use the drops when you are wearing contact lenses. Use your contact lenses 15 minutes after instilling bimatoprost eye drops.
