Drug Class and Mechanism
Bimatoprost is a synthetic (man-made) drug that resembles and mimics the effects of natural chemicals (prostaglandins) produced by the body. It is used for reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) and increasing the growth of eyelashes. The exact mechanism of action is unknown. Bimatoprost may reduce IOP by increasing the outflow of aqueous humor from the eye of individuals with narrow angle glaucoma. Excessive aqueous humor may cause optic nerve damage and visual loss. It increases eyelash growth by increasing the duration of the growing phase of the eyelash.

Warnings and Precautions when using Lumigan Eye Drops
Lumigan Eye Drops (Bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) has been reported to cause changes to pigmented tissues. The most frequently reported changes have been increased pigmentation of the iris, periorbital tissue (eyelid) and eyelashes. Gradual change to eyelashes including increased length, thickness and number of lashes. Pigmentation is expected to increase as long as bimatoprost is administered. The pigmentation change is due to increased melanin content in the melanocytes rather than to an increase in the number of melanocytes. After discontinuation of bimatoprost, pigmentation of the iris is likely to be permanent, while pigmentation of the periorbital tissue and eyelash changes have been reported to be reversible in some patients. Patients who receive treatment should be informed of the possibility of increased pigmentation. The long-term effects of increased pigmentation are not known.
Iris color change may not be noticeable for several months to years. Typically, the brown pigmentation around the pupil spreads concentrically towards the periphery of the iris and the entire iris or parts of the iris become more brownish.Intraocular Inflammation:
LUMIGAN Eye Drops ® 0.03% and LUMIGAN Eye Drops ® 0.01 % should be used with caution in patients with active intraocular inflammation (e.g., uveitis) because the inflammation may be exacerbated.Macular Edema:
