Careprost Eye Drop is a drug commonly used to lower intraocular pressure in patients with glaucoma. High intraocular pressure is caused by fluid accumulation in the eye, and can damage the optic nerve and lead to blindness. Careprost Eye Drops will decrease intraocular pressure by facilitating the excretion of fluid accumulated inside the eye. The fluid is called the aqueous humor and it is secreted, but also excreted by our eyes permanently. When the excretion process becomes too slow, Careprost helps you. Careprost Eye Drops work with bimatoprost, a prostaglandin analogue that has, among other effects, the characteristic of lowering intraocular pressure by helping to excrete the aqueous humor. Thus, intraocular pressure is normalized and the risk of damage to the optic nerve is greatly reduced.
