What is Lumigan?
Lumigan (bimatoprost) is prescribed for people with ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma that have not responded well to other medications. It is administered in the form of eye drops, producing results within about four hours.
Elevated pressure in the eye will eventually cause enough damage to the optic nerve to result in vision loss, so it’s crucial to use Lumigan every day as directed.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Open-angle glaucoma is the most common form of glaucoma and can cause blindness if not treated. About 15% of people who do receive treatment for it still lose their sight. The symptoms of glaucoma can go undetected for years in people who don’t have their ocular pressure checked regularly, so by the time they begin treatment, there is already some optic nerve damage.
People who can’t afford to maintain a reliable supply of Lumigan are at risk of disease progression and vision loss, but Simplefill aims to make sure that doesn’t happen. If you’re having trouble paying for your Lumigan prescription, you can count on us to get you the prescription assistance you need to treat your condition and preserve your vision.
How Does Lumigan Work?
Ocular hypertension and glaucoma can occur when there is a buildup of aqueous humor, the fluid produced in the eyes. There are several forms of glaucoma, caused by overproduction of aqueous humor or blockage of the routes through which it normally drains. With open-angle glaucoma, the problem is blockage of the trabecular network—the tissue at the point where the iris and cornea meet.
Lumigan is classified as a synthetic prostamide analog that mimics the action of naturally occurring protamides, which stimulate the rate of aqueous humor flow by reducing outflow resistance.
