Careprost is an ophthalmic solution, which is used to lower the stress built within the eye and is called as intraocular pressure. It is used to treat glaucoma that is produced when fluid is formed in the eye.Its an active ingredient. The increase in intraocular pressure can injure the optic nerve fibres that might cause a gradual loss of sight, beginning with peripheral vision and finally to total blindness in that eye.
Careprost is an eyedrop, 03% of it contains bimatoprost, a synthetic analogue of the logically taking place prostamide, which is a prostaglandin-like substance that has different and specific actions in numerous tissues of the body, including pressure reducing activity. The pressure formed in the eye that is seen in glaucoma is known by a blockage in the draining system for the eye liquid called as aqueous humour, which is produced to continue normal eye pressure. As the tide of liquid into and out of the eye becomes stable again, the pressure in the eye is lowered and this decreases the danger of damage to the optic nerve and loss of sight, which can occur if glaucoma is left untreated.
